A loan helped to revive her banana crop.


Germana's story

Germana is a 53-year-old woman who has grown bananas for 10 years. She sells her crop in the farmers' market.

Her fields were affected by Hurricane Otto, so she needs to revive her job. That's why she's requesting a loan for 1,636,970 colones [CRC] to pay back a current loan and request another one with better terms and kickstart her business.
