A loan of $650 helped to buy fertilizers for her corn, bean and vegetable crops.

Lezenia Del Carmen's story

Lezenia, 37, is married and has 2 children. She lives with her family in the town of Nueva Frontera in the department of Santa Barbara.

She has been farming for 9 years along with her husband. They cultivate corn, beans and vegetables, and they sell their produce in the local market.

Lezenia is requesting a loan to buy fertilizers so that she can maintain her corn, bean and vegetable crops. This is the 6th loan that she has requested, and the previous loans have helped her to keep her crops stable. She wants to continue with this assistance so that she can improve her land over time and make it more productive. This way she will get good harvests. Lezenia's goal is to acquire more land to cultivate and eventually leave to her children.
