A loan of $1,500 helped to buy seeds, fertiliser and manure.

Maria Elisabeth's story

María is married. She has a son and lives in Chimbo in the Bolivar province with her son and husband.

María works in agriculture, sowing corn on rented land. The loan she is applying for is to buy seeds, fertilisers and manure so as to sow a quality product that she will be able to sell for a fair price.

With the loan María can buy the necessary items to grow corn. María's dream is to save a little money to go on a trip to the beach, as she has never been before. In her spare time she likes to read romantic stories.
