A loan of $650 helped to buy vegetables to resell.


Irma's story

Irma, 25, is single and has three children: two boys and a little girl. This beautiful family currently lives in Panul 1 Neighborhood, San Antonio Palopó Municipality, Sololá Department. Irma works in agriculture specifically growing scallions. She does this work because she lacks formal employment. She puts a lot of dedication into this work which is why she gets good crops yields and when she sells them she earns the necessary income to contribute to her and her children’s support. She sells her crops to wholesale buyers that visit her in her community.

She’s asking for a 5,000 quetzal loan to buy vegetables to resell. She dreams with expanding the scallion sales by means of the purchase of a permanent sales spot thus increasing sales and profits.
