Brenda Alicia's story

Brenda is a 29-year old woman and single mother of two boys, aged 4 and 7. She lives with her mother and two brothers, and they all have been working in the cultivation of basic grains for around 15 years. Brenda's grandparents left them a land where they could cultivate and breed pigs, what they have done for three years now. She lives on a hill and, given that it's not accessible to animals (horses, donkeys) or vehicles, she needs to walk down to buy the supplies. She then needs to take the bus and ride 24 km to the city.

She's requesting a loan to Fundación Campo to buy farming supplies (formula, sulfates and pesticides) to cultivate 14,000 sqm of corn, using seeds from last year's harvest. If she has the funding to cultivate, she will wait for the corn prices to improve (she has not sold last year's harvest yet because prices have been too low) but won't waste time and will prepare the harvest for this year as well.
