A loan of $550 helped to purchase fertilizer, herbicides and seed.

Esmeralda Yaneth's story

Esmeralda wants to continue cultivating corn and pipián (type of squash) through an irrigation system. For this reason she is requesting a loan which she wants to invest in the purchase of fertilizer, herbicides and seed. These materials are ones generally used to protect and strengthen the production.

She believes that by working with these loans, she has done the work and the harvest and managed to pay off her debts and cover the household expenses. Her family has remained together with a desire to continue farming on the land. She hopes to buy an "achicadora" which is used to sow seeds.
