A loan of $550 helped to pay for irrigating the crops and to buy manure, fertilizers, herbicides, and insecticides.


Gladys Del Carmen's story

Gladys is a farmer. She is married, does not have children, and receives help from abroad.

She started her business as a source of extra income for her household. She learned this trade with her family.

Gladys will use the loan that she needs for crop irrigation. She will also buy manure, fertilizers, herbicides, and insecticides.

This investment will help her to improve the harvest and increase her income. Her objective is to have greater production, to plant vegetables, and to improve her living conditions.
