A loan of $500 helped to buy natural fertilizer and herbicides.

Maria Del Carmen's story

María needs more working capital for her corn and bean crops. That is why she is requesting a new loan to buy natural fertilizer and herbicides to improve the production of her corn and bean crops. This way she will be able to increase her income for her household.

She says that the last loan helped her to buy supplies and to rent the land that she cultivates. This way she was able to help feed her family.
