A loan of $600 helped to buy seeds and compost.


Alicia's story

Sra. Alicia is 46 years old and has only a primary school education. She is married to Sr. Víctor and they have three children. Her oldest child was not able to enroll at the university because of their financial situation. Therefore, he went to Brazil in order to work. He currently contributes to the university studies of the middle child. The youngest is attending a state primary school in the area.


Alicia’s parents worked in agriculture when she was a child. When she got married, they gave her an inheritance. She and her family currently live in the District of Caramarca, one of the areas that produces large amounts of onions, corn, potatoes, and other crops. Like any other area, her land is suitable for facilitating the family business of planting corn, potatoes, and onions. Alicia will begin planting potatoes this month, but she does not have the cash to buy seeds and compost. For this reason, she is requesting a loan. This will allow her to help her two youngest children so that they can become professionals.
