A loan of $400 helped to purchase manure, fertilizer, and insecticide.


Concepción's story

Concepción is 56 years old. She comes from a farming family and has worked for forty years as a farmer. She cultivates two plots of citrus. She does the work with the help of her children who are all adults. They help her with the farming work and others provide financial support for her household expenses.

This is her ninth loan and she will use it to purchase manure, fertilizer, and insecticide. At the beginning, Concepción had many difficulties with her crops but slowly she was able to take advantage of financing. In the future, she wants to leave her children and grandchildren the land that she has improved with a lot of effort.
