A loan of $400 helped to buy seed, manure, and a fumigation pump.


Amanda De Los Ángeles's story

Amanda, 61, has become a model for her family. She has lived in the countryside all her life and done the household chores. She had no opportunity to go to school. Her dream has always been to work the family farmland and earn income to make a contribution to the household expenses. Her brothers graciously gave her money to start her business.

Amanda now has a vegetable garden. Although this was not her original dream, she wants to become the main supplier at her city market and offer a variety of produce. She is applying for a loan to buy seed, manure, and a fumigation pump. She expects this investment will increase productivity and improve her family's circumstances.
