Sra. Fátima was born in Samaipata Florida and is married to Sr. Leodan Melean. They have three children and both of them work as farmers in an area that is 12km from the town of Limoncito. There they have a parcel of land on which they live and work. Fátima grows corn, cassava, sweet potatoes, and peanuts. Everything she grows is brought to the market in El Torno to be sold.

This is the first loan she is requesting from Emprender and the money will be used to buy seeds for growing corn and pay for the expenses related to harvesting and transporting crops to market. She is very grateful to Emprender for the trust that has been demonstrated to her so that she can improve her quality of life.
