A loan of $375 helped to buy farming supplies, fertilizers, and compost for her crops.

Dilma's story

Doña Dilma is 44 years old and single as a result of becoming a widow. She has eight children, but only four of them live with her. Dilma lives in the town of Las Vegas, Santa Bárbara.

From a young age, Dilma has engaged in agriculture. For the past 20 years, she has been growing greens, bananas, and vegetables. She takes advantage of this area since it is suitable for growing these products. Whatever she produces is sold at the local market.

The loan she is requesting is in the amount of 7,000 HNL and will be invested in the purchase of supplies, fertilizers, and compost for growing carrots, beets, fine cilantro, and radishes. She hopes to obtain a better harvest with this investment since her crops are in need of fertilizer. Her goal is to continue producing so that she can generate more income and improve the quality of life for her children.
