A loan of $650 helped to buy compost, urea, insecticide and fertilizers.

Janny Maribel's story

This is Janny. Her husband is a builder, and together they work to feed their children and give them an education, which is of the utmost importance to them. Janny is from a family of pineapple farmers. Now, she is getting more involved in the business and in order to do so, she is asking for a loan to buy compost, urea, insecticide and fertilizer for the upkeep of her crops. She has faced many problems when prices are far below average due to competition, and earnings are low. She is thinking of growing more pineapple trees and other fruits in the future to increase her crops.
