Claricsa Del Socorro's story

Claricsa del Socorro López is 41 years old and lives in the El Edén neighborhood, which is located in the city of of Ticuantepe. She is a single mother to four children. Two of them are married and they help her with the household expenses. The others are still studying. Her plans for the future are to improve her living conditions and to be able to finish building her house. Claricsa has been working as a farmer for 31 years. The biggest difficulty is that pests invade the crop because, for lack of funds, she is unable to use pesticides. With the loan she will buy fertilizers and other inputs to obtain a better harvest and a better income. Thanks to Afodenic, she is able to make progress with her project.
