Milena's story

Milena is 33 years old and is a hard working woman. She lives in the company of Antonio, her husband of 12 years. Both have 2 children, Daniel and Oder, who they take care of in their own home.

Since she was a young girl she lived near the agricultural fields. Her parents taught her everything that she now knows about the field. She possesses her own agricultural areas where sows vegetables and other basic need products. She takes good care of her crops, mostly because she learned to sow organically the way it was done before her grandparents. This yields high quality crops, thanks to which she has good earnings.

Now she hopes to continue to improve the quality of her food. She knows that she will achieve this because she is hardworking. Also, she receives the support of her husband who works as a construction worker; he builds a variety of houses.

Now she concentrates all her energy to improve her income to improve the quality of life of her children. This is her third loan. She is part of the solidarity group “Manos Fuertes” (Strong Hands) where she feels developed because of the financial help to progress her business. She promises to be punctual in her payments. Milena will invest the money in the purchase of organic manure to nourish her crops.
