Maria Elena's story

Maria Elena C. C. is 57 years old and lives in the neighborhood of San Caralampio, located in La Concepción Masaya. She lives with her husband who works as a shopkeeper to support her with the household expenses. They have three children, all of whom are already married and independent. Her plans for her family are to improve their quality of life. Maria Elena began her farming work with the support of her parents. The biggest difficulties that she faces are that she does not have her own little truck to transport the fruits and that on occasion, pests have harmed the crops since they lack the supplies necessary to produce a good crop. She is grateful for the institution for the approval of her first loan, which she will invest in supplies and fertilizers so that she will be able to achieve a good harvest.
