Marta's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to farm 6 acres of beans.

Marta's story

Marta is 54 years old. She is married and has 3 grown up children. She and her family work in agriculture and different farming tasks. Among them, growing whole grains and raising animals such as pigs and chickens. They are a very humble but hard-working family.

Marta invested the previous loan in her business raising pigs for fattening. With this loan, Marta wants to invest it in planting 6 acres of beans, taking advantage of the beginning of the rain season of the first agricultural cycle in the region.

The loan will be used to pay labour costs to prepare the soil and weed the land. She will also buy plant fertilizers as well as compost to give a good technical assistance to her crops and thus obtain better yields.
