Esmeralda De Jesús's story

Esmeralda, 60, was not able to study due to her parents economic situation. She is widowed and a mother of three children. None of them live with her. Her granddaughter lives with her who just finished ninth grade. Esmeralda has worked in agriculture for the past 20 years. After her husband died she had to cope with the obligation of taking care of her family. She also sells corn tamales. She walks about 3 km from her house. She starts working at 5:30 am doing chores around the house, then she goes to her parcel of land and returns at 11:30am and keeps working. Esmeralda is requesting a loan to buy fertilizers and to pay for the lease of the land so she can sow 7,500 cubic meters. Esmeralda hopes for a good harvest and to make a good income.
