A loan of $1,500 helped to prepare the land and plant corn.

Irma's story

Irma lives in the community of Pampa el Coscal, 40km from El Torno. She lives with her partner Víctor, and has six children who are already grown up. They live and work on the same piece of land. They farm, growing corn, watermelons, etc.

The loan she has requested is for planting watermelon and corn, and for everything involved in the preparation of the land. Things went well with the previous loan. The entire family works together farming. Irma takes everything they grow to the market in El Torno to sell, directly from producer to consumer.

They are a very close-knit and hard-working family. Irma is very proud of her children, as they help her in this work in a very self-sacrificing way.
