A loan of $1,000 helped to buy compost and poisons to apply to her cornfield, and also to buy a heifer.


Juana's story

Juana is 58 years old. She went to school through fourth grade. She is married and has two children who are already independent.

Juana works in farming and livestock raising. She raises corn, beans, and vegetables. She also cares for two bulls and chickens, since she sells the animals when they are in good condition.

She needs this loan to buy compost and poisons to apply to her cornfield. She will also buy a heifer.

She dreams of continuing to work to help her grandchildren get an education.
