De Los Angeles Benita Florencia's story

De los Ángeles Benita Florencia is a corn and rice farmer. She buys her products in Ventanas and sells them in the market there and in street markets in surrounding areas.

She requested the loan to buy manure, urea, liquids and fertilizer for her corn and rice crops. The loan has helped her increase income for her family’s consumption and to invest. Her dream is to be in good health to continue working and to buy a piece of land to leave to her children.

She enjoys watching television and celebrating at community festivals.
