Concepcion De Joyabaj Group's story

Santos is a 39-year-old single mother. She was not given the opportunity to go to school. She has seven children and none of them are studying. She makes a living from agriculture by planting corn and beans. She began this business by planting every winter and she now has 25 years of experience. She has help from her husband, who also makes a living from agriculture.

She organizes a group and she is requesting a loan, which will enable her to buy fertilizer for her crops. She hopes to get more land in the future and plant more crops. The other members of the group make a living from pig breeding and planting corn and beans.
