A loan of $375 helped to buy sacks of organic fertilizer.

Lidia's story

Lidia, 28, is a happy and hardworking woman. She lives in her own house with her partner Michael, 31, and their two beloved children, whom she hopes to give a better future.

With great effort Lidia has managed to work her land and make it productive. She grows cacao and tobacco plants, products that, once harvested, she takes to the city of Santa Rosa to sell wholesale. Her crops have given her the income necessary to support herself and help with the family expenses. This is why she hopes to put all her energy into getting this business ahead.

What she likes most about her work is sowing, since she feels very happy doing it. She has been doing this work for five years and she considers the most difficult thing to be transporting her products to the distribution centers. She wants to buy more land in the future to increase her crops.

This is her first loan and she is happy to know that she will have your support, since in this way she will feel sure of moving forward with her planned project. For this reason she is committed to making her payments punctually.

Lidia is requesting the loan to buy several sacks of fertilizer to fertilize her fields and make them productive again in time.
