Teresa De Jesús's story

Mrs Teresa de Jesús C., age 38, lives in San Ignacio with her children and husband. Her husband works as a welder. They have 4 grown children who help with the household costs with their monthly earnings. They have been farmers for over 22 years. One of the main problems that affect the business is shortages of potable water which is not supplied to her zone. They hope in the near future to purchase a tank of water to store up for the days when this vital liquid is not supplied. For now they are requesting a loan which will allow them to purchase fertilizers, pesticides and organic fertilizers which are better for planting and produce a better harvest. This investment in the future will improve their family's economic condition and permit them to explore new sources of income.
