A loan of $1,000 helped to maintain her pineapple plants.

Jimena's story

Jimena lives on the land she inherited in Palca Mayu, Cochabamba department, in the Carrasco province in Entre Ríos. She currently lives alone. She is single and has one son. Jimena is very dedicated to her work and puts in a lot of determination to move forward in life and give her son more opportunities. Not far from her home, Jimena grows rice and pineapple. She sells her product in the local area to businesses selling seasonal products. Jimena is applying for the loan to maintain her pineapple crops as this product generates a higher income. With the loan, Jimena will be able to pay for labourers and buy some agricultural supplies to maintain her pineapples.
