A loan of $350 helped to purchase agricultural supplies and improve her land.


Maria Santos's story

Maria, 56, has worked in agriculture for several years and this has given her the skills and knowledge necessary to take care of her crops. Her main crop is corn. She sells her crop to basic grain agencies that are near her home. The profits obtained from her sales help her with household expenses. She lives with her two children.

Maria is requesting a loan to be able to buy agricultural supplies that help her in the planting of her crops such as manure, seeds, and fertilizers which will allow her to improve the land, shown in the photograph, to have better harvests and thus be able to have better profits and to continue helping in the expenses of her house without any limitations
