A loan of $1,000 helped to plant peanuts.

Hilda's story

Hilda, 24, has three children, ages 3, 5, and 8. She works in agriculture, planting a variety of vegetables, as well as potatoes, yucca, and corn on her parcel of land in the community of Zanja Honda. This loan is her first from the institution. Hilda is going to use the loan to plant peanuts and prepare the soil. Her reason for applying for this loan is to be able to get resources for the planting and to be able to survive. Hilda confronts challenges in her business, like inclement weather that ruins the the planted fields on many occasions. She will use the profits to improve her quality of life and that of her family, since she is in charge of all household expenses. She is a responsible and hard-working person and she is grateful to the institution for the help it has given her.
