A loan of $1,025 helped buy a brush cutter and supplies.

Nazaria's story

Nazaria is married and has 4 children. She has lived in the town of Chimore for 20 years and came to the Campero province looking for a better life for her and her family. She says that at first she worked with her husband for daily wages only. Little by little, she was able to save up and buy her own small farm in a town far from the city of Chimore where she grows plantains and rice. Later on, she bought some urban land in a village within Chimore, where she lives regularly.

She has helped 3 of her children become independent by farming, supplying them with parts of her farm for them to use. Only one of her younger sons lives with her now. He is 16 years old and helps out a lot to harvest her crop.

Now, they wish to buy a motorized brush cutter and supplies to lighten the work of maintaining their crops. Despite their age, they want to keep progressing and generating income.
