A loan of $500 helped to buy farming supplies.


Maria Antonia's story

Maria lives with her life’s partner and eight children. She is a farmer who raises corn and beans and has been doing this for many years. She has lots of valuable experience which allows her to have better harvests. When it’s ready she stores it in sacks as shown in the photo and then goes out to sell it in the surrounding areas where she has many steady customers. Maria is dedicated to her work and is prepared to work hard to reach success. She wants to take advantage of her business and increase her production so she can have better earnings. She needs to invest in supplies bud needs working capital, so she is asking for a loan so she can buy corn and sorghum seeds, compost, insecticide, tools, etc., in order to have better earnings that will help give her family the life they deserve.
