but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to pay workers to harvest the corn, and the beans and to pay for the transportation of the harvest. She plans on doing this in a short time, which will keep her harvest from being wasted.

Aparicia's story

Aparicia is 51 years old. She didn't go to school and she is in a common law marriage. Her life's companion works in farming and only three of their six children, who work for the family. A grandson lives with them and is dependent on them. She helps her life's companion in the farming. She has always done this work and that is the type of work that is done in that area. She learned this work from her parents. He also taught her to make backpacks, since in that canton it is one of the most important sources of income. She makes the backpacks in her house and sells them in the closest town. To get to the corn, she and her life's companion walk there. She needs the money to pay the workers to harvest the corn and the beans and to pay for the transport of the harvest. She intends on doing this in a short time which will keep her harvest from being wasted. She plans on improving her home so that her children can improve their financial condition. The loan will help her to have raw materials for her job and thus increase her earnings.
