A loan of $450 helped to buy fertilizers and supplies.

Elizabeth Del Carmen's story

Elizabeth lives with her family in the town of San Caralampio. For the past few years she has earned her living raising citrus fruits. What has hurt her most, and affected everyone who farms, is the volcanic ash because it burned the entire crop of sweet oranges.

In the future Elizabeth plans to increase her income; agriculture is the source of survival, so it's of vital importance. Elizabeth wants to use her loan to buy fertilizers and the supplies she needs to start out the next production cycle.
