A loan of $1,200 helped buy fertilizers.

Mercedes Del Carmen's story

Mercedes del Carmen A. P. is 22, and she lives in the La Borgoña neighborhood. This is a neighborhood where the inhabitants have scant resources.

She has devoted herself to farming for 11 years. One of the main problems that she has encountered has been the drought that threatens the crops. She started working in this field thanks to her father, who supported her economically.

She now feels capable of asking for a loan to buy fertilizers and seeds to diversify the production. She also wants to open the door to new working businesses such as opening a clothing store.
