A loan of $1,450 helped to buy agricultural supplies.


Alicia's story

Alicia, 43, lives in the community of Liriuni. She is a widow and has two young children who are in elementary school. Her business is agriculture. She grows potatoes, ulluco, and oca. She grows on two hectares of land using crop rotation. The land was inherited from her parents. Alicia is asking for a loan to buy farming supplies like organic fertilizer and potato seed. She invested the money she had saved in dairy cattle. Alicia says that with the purchase of the supplies for this planting season, she will guarantee her family's food security and have savings for the education of her children.
