Elva Melida's story

Elva, age 42, is married and has two children. She lives in the Santa Cruz de Yojoa municipality.

She has been farming for six years. She grows yucca, corn, and beans. She sells the production at the local market. She also has another business activity. She does tailoring, which generates other income.

She will use the requested loan for 8,000 lempiras to fertilize her crops. She will do this to improve production and quality in order to facilitate sales. Her goal is to increase production in order to get greater income.
