A loan of $1,050 helped to purchase corn seed, manure, and to prepare her lands for planting.


Martina's story

Martina is 53 years old, and lives with her grandchildren who are studying at a university. She has three children who no longer live in her home, but who still help with household expenses. She makes a living farming and raising pigs, and she works with her brothers Monday through Saturday. She learned farming techniques from her parents, and those skills help her presently to generate income.

She is requesting a loan in order to purchase corn seed and manure, and to prepare her lands for planting. She also plans to purchase feed for her pigs. Martina hopes to be ready for the upcoming planting season, and this loan will help her financially so that she can acquire the necessary items in time.

Martina's dream is to grow her farm and produce healthy, good crops, as well as increase her product sales.
