A loan of $600 helped to buy organic fertilizer and seeds.


Martha's story

Martha was born in the city of Calca in the Sacred Valley of the Incas, which lies to the northeast of the city of Cusco. She is 67 years old, married, and has two children. She alternates her activities in the home with her business buying and selling corn and alfalfa. She has been doing this work for 40 years already, and it is going very well. At this time, Martha needs a loan to buy organic fertilizer and seeds to plant. Martha's dream is to buy some plots of land so that she can cultivate more corn and alfalfa.

Martha is a member of the communal bank "Virgen de Asunta de Calca,” which is made up of 15 members who live in the city of Calca, in Calca province in the department of Cusco, Peru.
