Verónica Etelvina
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.

More information about this loan

This loan is part of a CrediCampo project to help rural farmers living in extreme poverty plant basic grains to feed their families. Excess product is sold on the local market. These loans are smaller than the typical loans offered by this field partner, and guarantee requirements are also reduced. Individuals who receive this type of loan also get access to technical assistance, information on good environmental practices and increased access to farm inputs like fertilizer. This is considered a high risk loan due to the population and loan purpose, and CrediCampo is one of the very few institutions in El Salvador willing to working with these farmers.
