A loan of $1,550 helped to buy organic fertilizer.

Isaela's story

Isaela, age 63, lives in her own house with her husband because her children are adults and independent. Isaela’s work consists of cultivating citrus plants like limess, tangerines, and oranges. She also raises cattle as a secondary business activity.

She does this work on her agricultural land, which is one kilometer from her house. She has been doing this business activity for 20 years. She sometimes hires workers from her area to irrigate, clear, fertilize, and care for the crops. She likes her work activity because it allows her to have good financial income, and it allows her to be by her husband’s side during the hard working day that they both have.

She will now request 4,000 soles to buy organic fertilizer because she wishes to have a good production at the end of the harvest.
