A loan of $775 helped to buy organic fertilizer.

Paulina's story

Paulina, 42, is married to Marciano, 52, with whom she shares the joy of having two children. She owns a home made of good materials, the fruit of many years of labor. From childhood, she always helped with farm activities related to growing organic cocoa. When she reached adulthood, she received a plot of land from her parents, with which she can sustain her family. She has been in this business for about 22 years.

She likes her work very much because by maintaining her plots in a uniform manner, she will achieve a good profit at the end of the season, which motivates her to continue working. She currently finds herself in the middle of the productive season, and she needs sacks of organic fertilizer to considerably improve the quality of her products.

Her plans in the long term include buying a vehicle, given that her land is somewhat far from the city and the costs of transport are inconvenient, increasing the overall cost of production. On this occasion, she needs 2,000 Peruvian soles to buy organic fertilizer for her crops to improve her final production, as well as to pay for the workers who have the responsibility of carrying out this labor.
