Ernestina's story

Ernestina is a farmer. She learned this trade from her husband, with whom she has worked for a long time, so that she could contribute financially to their household and in this way have more opportunity to make economic progress. She mainly grows vegetables, which she offers for sale in the market plaza in her town where she is well known because of the good quality of her products. Because she lacks capital, Ernestina is seeking a loan that will allow her to buy fertilizers, irrigation equipment, insecticides and fungicides so that she can sustain her crops through the severe winter weather that they are getting, and make progress with her crops.

In this way, her family will enjoy a better income, with which they can have a better quality of life and greater opportunities for economic progress.
