A loan of $400 helped to buy fertilizer for her crops.

Alejandra's story

Alejandra is 36 years old and lives in the home that she bought with her partner, 37 year old Marino. They have 3 precious children who inspire Alejandra to continue working hard on the land where she grows cocoa and coffee crops. She has managed to grow very productive plants although it took great devotion on her part to achieve this. She has been working this plot for 8 years and these days she is considered to be quite knowledgeable about farming. During the harvest and crop transportation periods, she has to contract day workers as a matter of necessity in order to speed up the work.
With this loan that she is currently applying for, she will buy various sacks of fertilizer to make her crops look more healthy. Furthermore, to advance her work, she will also buy new land and she will continue growing crops with the same dedication which characterizes her. This is her second loan, and she feels happy to know that she has some financial support as she will feel more secure buying what she needs. She is committed to meeting her repayment schedule in a punctual manner.
She will use the NS1,000 to buy fertilizer for her crops.
