A loan helped to purchase avocado plants, compost and fertilizer.


Elsa's story

Elsa is an enthusiastic and hard-working woman of 51 years of age. She is divorced and her children are older although not totally independent. Elsa and her family have been affected by the lack of work due to the health emergency. Because of this, Elsa has tried to get ahead by growing avocados. She is asking for a loan to be able to purchase avocado plants, compost and fertilizer to be able to improve production. This product is very popular at the market.

Elsa hopes to be able to live a modest life with her children so that they can study and start their own business when there is lack of employment.
