Evelin Del Carmen's story

Evelin is 37 years old and lives in her own home with her husband and three children. She has been growing corn for 8 years and sells her product in different markets near her home. Evelin is seeking a loan to buy fertilizer, manure, insecticide, pesticide, etc. so she can improve her land to plant her crops. Her land is pictured in the photograph. In this way she will be able to continue farming, which is her only source of work.
