A loan of $1,225 helped to buy farming supplies for growing potatoes.

Ana Joaquina's story

Ana Joaquina is very pleased and appreciates all of the blessings that God has provided. Her first loan was used to buy farming supplies so that she can tend to three plots of land. She also bought certified seed that allowed her to continue expanding her crops. Thanks to the purchase of these supplies, Ana was able to produce 35 quintals (1 quintal = 100 kg) of potatoes that were sold at a very good price. The income she earned made it possible for her to fulfill her commitments.

Her profits were also used to buy more seed so that she could replant. In addition, she bought fertilizer for a small plot of coffee that she is cultivating so that she can earn additional income from that harvest at the end of the season. Ana's first loan was of great help since she was be able to complete her goals and continue working in the same manner as she always has.

She is requesting her second loan so that she can buy farming supplies in order to prepare part of her land that is not ready for cultivation. As a result, she will be able to plant a new seedbed.
