Francisca's story

Francisca is 61 years old, and lives with her husband and two children in their own home. For more than 25 years, Francisca has made a living farming corn and beans on the land pictured above, and she is a very responsible, hardworking woman. The income she is able to generate form her harvests is always put towards covering her family's household expenses, but it is often not enough.

With the support from this loan, Francisca plans to purchase agricultural products for tending her crops, including: manure, seeds, fertilizers and other items. She hopes that this investment will help her to improve the quality of her soil as well as her future harvests and overall quality of life.
