A loan of $775 helped to buy fertilizers and farming supplies.


Teresa Del Carmen's story

Doña Teresa, 38, is a farmer. Her husband is a part-time construction worker and their combined income covers the family's expenses. They have two children, both still in school. Doña Teresa grows pineapples, a crop that provides a steady income. She is applying for a loan that she will use to buy urea, fertilizer, pesticides, etc. for her next planting and to protect her crop against insects. The investment will help her maximize her yield and harvest her fruit for sale.
