A loan of $300 helped to buy certified potato seed, manure, and fertilizer to maintain her crops.


Maria Argelia's story

María Argelia, 25, is the mother of a young son who lives with her and his father at home. She finished 9th grade; however, she could not continue because her parents could not pay for additional schooling. They taught her how to grow vegetables such as lettuce, broccoli, and cabbage. She now farms to be able to produce more, as she owns the land and has bought more to add an additional crop, potatoes.

She has applied for a loan to buy certified potato seed, manure, and fertilizer to fortify and maintain her crop, as this is necessary for its growth and health. Her goals are to produce a good potato harvest, to generate a good profit from the crop, and to reinvest, but with less commitments. As a mother, she dreams of helping her son finish his education, among other needs that present themselves along the way.
