A loan of $775 helped to buy organic fertilizer.

Nilda's story

38-year-old Nilda is married to Juan and the couple have two children: 12-year-old Cristian and 6-year-old Johnny. They all live in a house that they built 10 years ago. Nilda has been farming since she was 20, which is when she started living with her husband. Over the years, she has worked the land growing peas, beans, barley, gladioli and corn. "It works out well growing peas, beans and gladioli because they are ready to harvest in just four months", she says.

Thanks to her perseverance in her work, Nilda has managed to acquire animals such as bulls with which she plows her land. She has also managed to buy a plot of land. Her goals center around increasing her production. In order to achieve this, she needs organic fertilizer. Her land has already provided the seeds she needs.

Nilda will invest the 2,000 soles she has requested in buying organic fertilizer with which to feed her crops. She promises to make her loan repayments on time.
