A loan of $875 helped to buy onion seeds and organic fertilizer.


Erminia's story

Erminia used to live in a community very far from her town. She got married when she became pregnant, and had to leave everything in the area she lived to migrate to the town, together with the father of her child. In the time they were in the town they had another child. They now have two beautiful children.

Erminia, from the moment she arrived in the town, a productive area, has dedicated herself to working in agriculture. She works as a labourer, with all her family, in order to help them to be successful. In the last harvest season there was a natural disaster, and hail fell on the whole area. The yield fell on the plot where she worked, and this disaster caused her to fail to bring earnings home to her family, who live on the agricultural production of the small plot.

Erminia is an exemplary mother, well-loved and respected in the place where she lives, due to her dedication to her family and her work. She is applying for this loan to buy more onion seeds and organic fertilizer, and in this way improve the quality and yield of her crop, to improve her earnings and give a better quality of life to her small children, and so that they can attend school in better conditions. The loan will provide much help for the family and for the hard work they all carry out.
