A loan of $1,475 helped to expand her banana farm.


Janelly's story

Janelly is a 20 year-old single woman and a high school graduate. Her dream is to continue her studies but because of a lack of financial resources, she as been unable to do so. She currently lives with her parents who are elderly and unfortunately cannot pay for their daughter's studies. So Janelly is growing bananas on a plot of land that her parents gave her. The income she earns from selling bananas is not enough to allow her to save for her professional studies. She would like to get a loan in order to allow her to expand banana production. This would increase her income and help her to improve her quality of life, in addition to allowing her to achieve her dream of studying and becoming a professional nurse.
