Yrma works her farm each and every day. At 55 years of age, she has not lost her vitatility for working the land -- an inheritance from her parents and her way of life. She rises early each morning to take care of her corn and potato crops to make sure she will have a good harvest. Currently, Yrma would like to buy animals to raise, start a small general store, and also get ready for planting next season’s crops. For these reasons, she is asking for a loan which she will invest into purchasing the needs for her next planting and also for merchandise to stock her new store. Please help support Yrma so she can continue with her endeavors.
