Marta Antonia's story

Doña Marta is a woman of 50. She is an entrepreneurial woman with a great will to advance. She works in agriculture along with her husband, with whom she has two children, who work on the land of their parents, helping them in the various activities that they carry out in the fields. Doña Marta learned this work when she was very small; her parents were the ones who taught her to work the land, since her family have been farmers for generations. Her plantings are located in a nearby community, which is about a 40-minute walk away. Doña Marta completed primary education, and she works hard every day to give the best to her children, so that they can be better and have greater opportunities. In this way she will be able to have hopes for when she and her husband are old, to have support from them. As a mother, her dreams and plans for the future are to see her children have better living conditions, with better employment opportunities, and with land where they can live and work. For her business, she hopes to be able to plant a greater quantity and variety of products so that in this way she can build up her land and strengthen her household economy. For these reasons, she has now applied for a loan with which she can inject capital into her plantings, protecting them with different supplies that she can buy, such as compost, fertilizers, and fungicides, among other items, which will give a good harvest this season.
