A loan of $900 helped to buy seeds, compost, fertilizers, herbicides, etc.


Maria Elvira's story

Maria is 47 years old and has been farming for 20 years. Her main crops are corn and beans. On weekends she also sells underwear from her home. She uses the money she makes from selling crops and underwear to cover some of her household expenses. Maria lives with her husband and son. She would like to continue farming but doesn't have enough money to buy seeds, compost, fertilizers, herbicides and tools. For this reason, she is requesting a loan to buy these items. This will allow her to continue working and make more profits so that she can provide her family with a better quality of life.
