María Teresa's story

María Teresa R. is 35 years old and married. She lives with her husband and her 10-year-old son in the Los Ríos neighborhood. They are farmers; they were able to acquire their farm with her mother's help, and now it is a solid source of support for the family. One of the main problems affecting their production is caused by the gases emanating from the volcano. For this reason, they hope in the future to be able to undertake a study that will lead to soil conservation for future projects. For the present, however, they are requesting a loan to buy planting supplies along with fertilizer and pesticides which will provide optimal maintenance for their new plantings. This will boost their household economy and favor their investment in new sources of income or family and/or personal projects.
