A loan of $300 helped buy natural and chemical fertilizers.


Maria Ines's story

María Inés, age 57, lives in the San Simón municipality in the Morazán department. She lives with her husband and their three children. Her activity is farming. She plants corn and raises farm animals. She has always done this work because she lives in a rural area, which lends itself to this activity. María needs a loan to buy chemical and natural fertilizers in order to have a good corn harvest. This will help to guarantee that María’s family has a harvest, which will allow them to sell part of it and use the other part for household expenses. This is dependent upon the rains being favorable for the harvest. Her objectives are to help her family, to generate income for their basic needs, and to give her family a better quality of life.
