A loan of $1,000 helped pay to plant her potato crop.

Norma Veronica's story

Norma is 27 years old and is married with a one-year-old son. She works in farming. She grows potatoes, corn, and yuca on her plot of land that is located in Betanzo.

She is a new customer with this field partner and this loan is her first with it. Norma will use this loan to buy seeds and prepare the land to grow potatoes. In this way, she will increase her production. Her reason for asking for this loan is a lack of money for the planting season.

Norma faces challenges in her business during this cold season, since her crops are often ruined. She will use the profits to improve the quality of life of her family.
