Balvina's story

Balvina lives in a village of San Martin Jilotepeque. She is 50 years old, married and has 7 children in her care. Balvina works in her own home raising animals and making traditional blouses to sell. She is seeking the loan to buy organic fertilizers for coffee plantations and to buy pigs. She wants to buy a water motor to draw water from the well to irrigate her crop. Her plans also include sowing crops (coffee plants). Her dream is that little by little her business grows more and more.
