A loan of $925 helped to purchase organic fertilizer.

Nerida's story

28-year-old Nerida has been married to Juan Carlos for two years. They have two children, and live all together in their own home. Each day is a constant struggle for Nerida as she gets up very early to tend to her crops of potatoes, corn and other produce, and then she opens her meat stall which she runs from her home.

Nerida has had her business for around one year and cannot neglect any of her tasks as her children also depend on her for their sustenance, and her husband works in another city. She also raises small animals such as guinea pigs, fattening them up for sale. She wants her family to be happy, and is planning to increase the number of animals she owns and thus increase her profits. Nerida will invest this loan in buying several bags of organic fertilizer (livestock manure).
