A loan of $925 helped to buy medicines.


Letty Leonor's story

Letty lives in Machala (a province enriched by crops). She started her business when she was told that chili pepper crops and other organic products were very good to sell, and they were going to rent her hectares of land for her to be able to farm. Little by little she was cultivating the land and selling the chili pepper crop. She was able to have capital in order to be able to have more plants. She now continues with her business. Letty grows the chili peppers, and she sells them by the ‘quintal’ [weight measurement equal to 100 kilograms]. One of her difficulties is transporting her crop. She has a daughter who attends a private school. She wants to use the loan to buy medicines for her daughter because she wants her to be in good health when classes start. She has many aspirations for the future. Therefore, she wants to continue with her business. She also wants her daughter to be in very good health.
