A loan of $1,000 helped to buy organic fertilizer and crop seed.


Nicolaza's story

Nicolaza is 33 and a single mother of two children. She lives with her mother, who is 61, in the town of Aguirre, some 42 km outside of the city of Cochabamba. Nicolaza grows agricultural crops such as potatoes and beans on her farm of 1.6 hectares. She cares for 4 cows, and is a very hardworking woman. She seeks this credit to buy organic fertilizer to increase her potato crop yield. She used a prior loan to pay for her own house. She does not have access to credit in large banks, and is very happy to be able to participate in microcredit and improve her family's situation, allowing her two children the opportunity to study.
