A loan of $600 helped to buy urea, seeds, and fertilizers.

Nelly Marisol's story

Nelly Marisol is 38 years old and is married with three children. She lives with her husband and children in the Ventanas, a province of Los Ríos.

She is a member of the VRC "LUCHA Y PROGRESO," whose members are involved in agriculture, and who all live in the area surrounding Progreso and have practically all been brought up in this area.

Nelly Marisol works in agriculture and grows corn, and also sells agricultural supplies. She is asking for a loan in order to buy urea, seeds, and fertilizers. With the aid of this loan, she will be able to plant corn from certified seeds.

The buying and selling is something she has been doing every six months. Her dream is to be able to plant cacao and coffee plants. The hardships she has faced are the lack of agricultural inputs for her plots. In her free time, she likes to travel.
