A loan of $200 helped to purchase fertilizer for corn cultivation.

Verónica Etelvina's story

Verónica, 20 years old, is single and has no children. She is pregnant, and completed a high school diploma. She lives in a house with her parents, her sister-in-law, and her younger brother.

Since she was little, Verónica has worked with her father growing corn. With him, she learned everything she knows. She works at a restaurant that is 900 meters from her home. Her schedule is from 6 a.m. to 11 a.m. but because of her situation, she is on leave at the moment.

This loan will be used to purchase fertilizer for the corn cultivation that is already established and that she works on together with her siblings.

What Verónica wants most is to be a mother, and give her child the schooling and the luxuries that she was not able to have.
