A loan of $750 helped to buy organic manure.

Adela's story

Adela, 34, is married and has three children she lives with in a house built of adobe. Three years ago she used money she’d saved working in the fields and opened a store to sell farm supplies like organic manure and anti-pest powder for the most damaging pests in her zone. She decided to go into this business because there aren’t many similar stores in her area and this allows her to have good sales to support her family. She likes her work very much because she doesn’t have to leave home and can care for her children. When she needs merchandise she has to request it from suppliers that live in a city very near her own. Her main objective is to expand the business with more variety of products and at the same time replace the adobe in her house with bricks and cement. On this occasion she wants to ask for 2,000 new soles to stock her store purchasing organic manure for it.
