A loan of $1,425 helped to buy certified potato seed and agricultural inputs.

Maria Aracely's story

María, 24, is a young homemaker and farmer, the single mother of two daughters. She completed school. She lives with her brother.

She and her brother are farmers. They have grown potatoes and vegetables for a long time because their parents taught them to work the land, and agriculture's a tradition in their family. She also grows corn and beans in the cold weather.

She's grateful to God that she has her own plot of land to farm. It's located across from her house, so her maintenance is more constant. Only she and her brother are involved.

She has requested a loan from the COMIXMUL cooperative because she's going to buy certified potato seed with soil amendments and fertilizer to maintain her current crops as well as the ones she plans to grow.

With this purchase she plans to extend her crops a little more, sell more to her customers, and generate greater income for her family. Her dreams are to be able to give her children a good education and a better life.
