A loan of $200 helped to buy fertilizer to cultivate tomatoes.

Yanira Elizabeth's story

Yanira is 22 and lives with her husband and two-year old son. She is a housewife and does some agricultural work, supporting her husband, in order to gain income. She has been cultivating corn and tomatoes for the last three years.

She is seeking a loan to buy fertilizer to apply to her tomato patch, since she has already finished the corn harvest, where she also applied fertilizer. This loan will give her the money to fortify her tomato plants, so she can have a good harvest and good sales and help feed her family.

Yanira's goal for the future is to improve her farming, since she is economically dependent on it. She also wants to offer her son a more stable lifestyle.
