A loan of $1,050 helped to buy fertilizer, urea and insecticides.

Celia Del Socorro's story

Celia is 39 years old, from a farming family, and completely dedicated to this work. Her husband now works as a construction worker and with this income they support each other with the household expenses. Thanks to God her children are continuing their studies, despite the obstacles that they faced due to the lack of funding for farming. However, little by little they acquired loans and repaid their installments on time.

Today Celia is requesting her eighth loan to maintain a plot of land sown with pineapples by buying fertilizer, urea and insecticides. This will allow her to offer better products to her customers, and in the future to augment her sowing of pineapples to two plots of land, thus make more profits to support her family.
