A loan of $1,000 helped to buy fertilizer and herbicides, as well as two pigs.


Gilma Cristelia's story

Gilma needs more working capital, and this is why she is applying for a new loan in order to purchase agricultural supplies for the half manzana (about 1.4 acres) of beans that she has planted. She will do this by buying fertilizer and herbicides, and will also buy two pigs for slaughter, as well as the feed concentrate for fattening them. This will help her to maintain a stable livelihood. She says that with the previous loan she obtained more earnings, and has a more profitable business so that she can meet her household expenses. In addition, her family has enjoyed a better diet.
