A loan of $625 helped to purchase fertilizers and pesticides.

Gladys Estela's story

Gladys Estela S. Q. is a young, single 27-year old, who lives in the El Rodeo neighborhood. She is a farmer and, thanks to her father who taught her the tasks related to this activity, she earns her daily living in this manner.

Among the primary plans she has for her farm is the construction of a water tank. This would allow her to store this vital liquid for use on her crops when there is not enough of it in her region so that her harvests, and her daily sustenance, won’t be negatively affected. She requests the loan to buy fertilizers and pesticides that would allow her to maintain her lands and guarantee a higher level of production from her crops. This would increase the volume of her sales, allowing her to invest in a base for the water tank and the continued improvement of her standard of living.
