Paulina's story

Paulina S. C. is a single mother who works to support her family. She has three children, and was abandoned by her husband when her child had just been born. Since that time, she has been responsible for her family. Paulina S. C. is a hard-working woman. She grows rice and oranges, and is the mother of three children, whom she helps and supports in their education. Along with her oldest child, she rises early to work on her farm, so that her crops will be good and she can sell them at the closest local market. She follows the same routine every day. Paulina S. C. came to the office because of a comment made by one of her neighbors, who said that CIDRE would give loans for production, and that he had taken out a loan and improved his production, thanks to CIDRE. Paulina came to ask for a loan to buy seedlings and thus improve her production a little, in order to have a better life with her family.
