A loan helped to buy sacks of fertilizers and fungicides to take good care of her potato crop.


Joaquina's story

Joaquina is 33 years old, married, and has three children. She lives in a community in the municipality of La Esperanza, Intibucá. She has always worked in agriculture, growing potatoes. She has her production on a plot of land that she owns. She distributes her products in the same area or in the local market.

Joaquina needs to maintain her crop. She is requesting her second loan of 20,000.00 Lempiras [HNL] to buy sacks of fertilizers and fungicides to take good care of her crop. This will help her to obtain a quality yield and increase her earnings. Her goal is to increase her income.
