A loan of $775 helped to buy nursery seedlings and organic fertilizer.

Vilma's story

Vilma, 24, is married to Wilder and has a four-year-old daughter. They live in an adobe house. As a girl, Vilma learned how to produce organic cacao from her parents. She first helped with basic tasks and later was involved in the many tasks integral to producing quality cacao. When she married, she inherited from her parents land on which she could continue growing cacao. She has her husband's full support, as he maintains the plantings so that they have quality pods at harvest time.

Vilma expects to keep working with her characteristic motivation to acquire more land to grow cacao and to grow other crops such as mullein and string beans. She is very grateful for the chance to receive a loan with which she can do her work. She promises to make her payments on time. Vilma needs S/. 2,000 soles to buy nursery seedlings and organic fertilizer.
