Ines Paz's story

Ines, 65, is described as a sincere, hard-working, humble, and especially a group worker. Ines is a widow, has two children, and she lives in Huaca, a small village 15 minutes from San Gabriel in Carchi province.

Ines works with a partner growing potatoes. This is the fifth loan that she has requested from Fodemi, and she will use it to buy fertilizer so that her crops will be of good quality and not be damaged during bad weather. This investment will help Ines have an excellent harvest and allow her to sell a quintal of potatoes for a good price. Thus she will be able to have earnings to help her cover her household expenses.

Ines’ dream is to have good health so that she can continue working and covering her household expenses.
