Martha Lourdes's story

Mrs. Martha Lourdes P. L. is 48 years old and lives in Barrio San Pedro. She is a single mother of one grown son, who is married and is the manager of his own business. She has been in the agriculture business for more than 20 years. She has been facing various problems in her business including drought and plagues that have reduced her production affecting her financially. She inherited the land from her father. Her husband abandoned her many years ago and she doesn't have anyone who can help her. For now she is requesting a loan to buy fertilizers, fungicides and agricultural supplies that suit the lands. In a short time the recovery from the investment and the possibility to invest in new areas of work and income will improve her quality of life and therefore of her only son and his kids.
