Ana has been farming for seven years. Her parents provided her with a plot of land so that she and her children could get ahead. Ana’s greatest difficulty in growing pineapple is the lack of resources to acquire fertilizers and other supplies to improve her production. Her first loan was used to help part of her plantation recover from an invasion of pests. She thanks AFODENIC for the support that was provided to her.
Her second loan will be invested in agricultural supplies so that she will be able to sell her crops at a better price and make her payments on time. She is grateful for this opportunity and appreciates that these development programs are available to help many farmers and small business owners.
