A loan of $1,000 helped to buy manure, seeds and fertilisers, and to improve her land.

Flor De Guadalupe's story

Flor has worked in agriculture for several years. This has given her the ability and the knowledge she requires to look after her crops. She mainly sows maize and beans. She sells her crops to agencies in her locality that deal in staple grains. The money she makes from these sales helps with her family’s bills. She lives with her husband and two children.

Flor is requesting a loan in order to buy agricultural supplies, such as manure, seeds and fertilisers, for use when sowing her crops, and also to improve the land she sows, which can be seen in the photo. She hopes that this will increase her earnings and in that way she can continue to contribute to the household bills without difficulty.
