Maria Rosa's story

Maria is 40 and has been farmer for many years. She carefully tends to her corn and maicillo, which allows her to support her household. She is hardworking, honest, and responsible. She lives with her family, which includes her husband and their three children. She and her husband work very hard to provide for their family and provide better living conditions than the ones they grew up in. Her knowledge of farming, which is her main income source and the only way she knows to make an honorable living, lets her support her family. She very much wants to be successful and has approached the institution for a loan, as it is planting season and she needs to start as soon as possible. She needs the loan to buy agricultural supplies: seed, manure, insecticide, fertilizer, etc. She trusts in God and her work to achieve an abundant harvest that will afford her and her family a better standard of living.
