A loan of $500 helped to buy soil amendments, fertilizer, seed, etc.


Carmen Beatriz's story

Carmen lives with her husband and her three-year-old son in her own house. She's a hardworking, responsible, and very enterprising woman.

She has made a living in agriculture for several years. Her main crop is corn and beans. She stores her harvests in the sacks shown in the photograph and later goes out to sell them in the markets near her house. She has very good customers because she has learned how to earn their trust. She offers quality and good prices in her products.

Carmen has decided to invest in taking care of her crops because it's her only form of income. This is why she has requested a loan to be able to buy soil amendments, pesticide, fertilizer, herbicide, seed, and other things she needs for her crop that will allow her to grow in her business.

She hopes this will give her favorable results so she can continue giving her household the financial help it needs so much.
