A loan of $500 helped to buy yucca and a variety of fruits, and for her agricultural activities.


Santos Marina's story

Santos lives with her 60-year-old husband and two children, 25 and 26, for whom everyone works to make a better life. She earns her living selling fruit and snacks, and growing basic grains. She says she's been in business for 25 years. She sells fruit in the morning and snacks in the afternoon.

Santos needs a loan to buy yucca and a variety of fruits, and for her agricultural activities, among other things. This investment will help her strengthen her economic stability and better her business as well as satisfy her clients.

Santos's dream is to build a house on a plot of land she has so her children can have a roof that keeps the water out.
