A loan of $600 helped to buy agricultural supplies for sowing basic grains.


María Luisa Bartola's story

María went to school until high school. She is married and appears in the photo with her husband. Her husband works in agriculture and they have 3 children who do not live with them.

María has worked with her husband in agriculture for over 22 years, which has taught her much about the work. She has another source of income, which comes from lending the services of a mill. She walks to where she farms because it is nearby.

She needs a loan to buy agricultural supplies to sow basic grains.

María dreams of being able to produce more basic grains, thereby earning better income. She also hopes to improve her milling business in order to keep offering its services.
