A loan of $1,300 helped to buy fertilizers and supplies.

Maria Elena's story

Señora María, along with her husband, is a resident of the municipality of La Concepción. The plans she has for her family are to improve their living conditions.

Since Doña María was very young she has worked in the fields because that was where her parents had her working the land so that it would bear fruit and with this she would feed herself and her family.

Doña María faces a great financial situation with regard to the farm because she does not have the resources needed to be able to give the upkeep that is required for the cultivation of citrus fruits like the lemon and sweet and sour oranges, among others; and since this is the only source of income she has to be able to get ahead in life and bring food into her home. She wants the loan in order to buy fertilizers and supplies to use on the farm and get a good harvest.
