Enma Nelys
Emma, 55, completed sixth grade. She’s married at present and her husband works in agriculture. They’ve had three children but only two of them who are 19 and 22 years of age are still in their care. One of them is their daughter and she has a two-year-old daughter.

She’s currently working in the city as a domestic employee; she’s been working for six months earning household income this way. She learned her skills at the age of 15 from her mother who’s been working as a domestic employee for 40 years. She also gets support from her son who sends her stipends to cover household expenses.

She will use the loan to buy agricultural supplies like fertilizer and to pay labor costs to apply the fertilizer to the crop. She has 12 ‘tareas’ [1 tarea = 628.86 square meters] of land planted with corn and having money she’ll be able to use it for the purchase and then apply it to improve the crop’s growth so that crop yield will be larger and she’ll have enough basic grains to feed her family.

Her dream is to get an abundant harvest because it’s very important to her to be able to feed her family and support her children so they can have the things they need and so that her granddaughter can go to school in future.
