A loan helped to purchase agricultural supplies, and to pay labor costs and rent on the land she plants.


María Magdalena's story

María studied up to the fourth grade in school, is partnered, and her partner works in agriculture. Her children now live on their own.

María works growing corn. She goes by foot to the land which is one kilometer from her house. Her work schedule is from 5:00 in the morning to 12:00 noon.

She needs a loan to purchase agricultural supplies, and to pay labor costs and rent on the land she plants.

Her dreams are to continue cultivating the land and to get good harvests to sell them and manage to have a good profit margin.
