A loan of $1,025 helped to buy 600 pounds of fertilizer and to pay for labor.

Ernestina Guadalupe's story

Ernestina, who makes her living in agriculture, is presented with the need to apply for a new loan. This is an opportunity and important economic resource to increase the agricultural harvests and other activities. This investment will help her to buy 600 pounds of fertilizer to fertilize 16 plots of land measuring 69.03m² each, which she has already planted. It will also pay for labor to clean all of the undergrowth.

Thanks to her previous loan, the corn and bean harvests increased. This helps her a lot given that she has not had to buy corn or beans but instead has been able to sell them to pay back her loan. Her economic conditions have improved because the investment has generated income to support her family. She also made a change to her home, adding a bedroom and kitchen to her house.
