A loan of $550 helped to invest in the purchase of high quality corn seed for the new sowing season; to purchase fertilizer; and to prepare the land.

Lizeth's story

The member belongs to the “VIRGEN NATIVIDAD” communal bank. The bank is located in the Yucay district, in the province of Urubamba, Cusco department.

The member is Lizeth. She is 26 and single. She works with her family in agriculture. They produce high quality white corn. White corn is a large grain, rich in flavour, which is highly sought-after. For this reason, they export this highest quality variety of corn. Lizeth and her family invest all of their time in improving their production. She wants this loan to invest in one of her family's plots of land, and in the purchase of seeds for the new sowing season. She needs to plough her land and prepare it for the new crop, and then fertilize the land. She is requesting this loan to invest in the purchase of high quality corn seeds for the new sowing season, as well as fertilizer, and for preparing the land.

She is grateful for the support that we are offering and promises to repay her quotas in a disciplined manner.
