Maribel's story

60-year-old Maribel lives in her own house with her husband and her five children. She has made a living from agriculture for several years. She plants corn and beans. When the harvest is ready she stores her crops in the silos shown in the photograph. With the profits she obtains from her sales she manages to cover her household expenses. Maribel is requesting a loan in order to be able to buy seeds, fertilizer, compost, herbicide, etc. and continue sowing and harvesting so she can give her family better economic stability.
