A loan of $1,275 helped to buy fertilizers, manure, and other items.

Ángela's story

Angela has been working as a farmer for 21 years on land where she has planted pineapples and coffee. Her children are adults, and two of them work and help her out economically. The others help her with the farming. She got her house through a housing project. She sells her crops in the market. She has buyers to whom she sells all of her harvest. The loans she’s obtained through AFODENIC have been well invested in the land that she plants. The requested loan is to maintain two manzanas [unit of land] of pineapple. For this she needs to buy fertilizers and manure, among other things, so that she can continue to offer good products to her clients, who have worked with her and bought her fruit for years.
