Marlenis Esmeralda's story

Marlenis is 31 years old and the mother of four children. She is a hard worker and provides her services as a housekeeper. She also works for a wage in agriculture. She has been working in these activities for 26 years and it was her mother who taught her. It was with much effort that she raised her children and today Marlenis is doing the same with her children as a single mother.

Marlenis buys agricultural inputs in a town that is half an hour from home. The loan she is requesting is to buy 4 bags of fertilizer, fungicides and other materials to prepare the land. With the investment she will be able to cultivate and get a good harvest to feed her family. What she most wants is to work very hard for her income to improve every day and give her children an education.
