A loan of $500 helped to buy improved seed and fertilizer.

Juana's story

Juana lives with her husband and three grandchildren, ages 24, 10, and 9. They came to take care of these grandchildren after their daughter died. Juana, her husband, and their oldest grandchild grow corn and beans. They learned it from their parents when they were young.

Currently they are starting the winter crop. Juana is requesting a loan to buy improved seed and fertilizer. With this she will be getting the necessary resources to be able to develop the crop and get good results.

Her goal is to improve her grandchildren's life and be able to help them so they can take care of themselves in their own lives in the future.
