Cristina's story

Cristina lives with her husband and adult children. The home in which they reside is their own. Cristina is a homemaker, but she also works with her husband and children in growing corn and cassava. She has been farming for 15 years, but she also raises livestock.

At the moment, Cristina is requesting a loan in order to buy farming supplies for investing in a new cornfield that will be started by her husband and children. She needs to buy compost, seeds, and herbicides so that they can start this new crop. Her goal is to support her family with whatever they need. The crops they produce help to provide food for themselves, but are also sold to some of their customers.
