A loan of $1,025 helped to plant yucca and prepare the land.


Tomasa's story

Tomasa is 32 years old and has three children who are 9, 7 and 5 years old. She works in agriculture, planting a variety of vegetables - such as potato and yucca - on her parcel of land, which is located in the community of Cañada Strongerst. This loan is her eighth cycle with Emprender. Tomasa is going to use this loan for planting yucca and for preparing the land. Her reason for requesting this loan is to have the resources to plant and be able to subsist. Tomasa faces challenges in her business such as the inclement weather that, on many occasions, ruins her crops. She will use the benefits to improve the quality of life for her family, as she is responsible for all of the household expenses. Tomasa is a responsible and hard-working person who feels grateful to the organization for the offered support.
