A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase fertilizers to be able to improve her crop yield.

Rosa's story

Rosa B. S. is 48 years old and lives in the Los Martínez neighborhood, located in the municipality of La Concepción. She lives with her husband, who works and helps with household activities. They have three children, all of which are now independent of them. Her plans for her family are to improve a grocery store that they have and, as a result, improve their living conditions. Rosa has worked in agriculture for the past 26 years. The biggest difficulty for her is the lack of financing. She began working in agriculture with the support of her father. Her future plan for her crops is to improve the yield. With this loan, Rosa will purchase fertilizers and supplies to be able to improve her crops. She thanks the lending institution for their support in these ten loan cycles, as it has helped her to make housing improvements and improve her crops.
