A loan of $1,000 helped to buy manure, seeds, fertilisers, pest control, etc.


Alba Marisol's story

Alba is 31 and lives in her own house with her husband and their two children, aged 14 and 4. She has been growing corn for the last 4 years, and she sells her produce in various markets near her house. Her husband helps her with the sowing. They use the money they make from the sales to cover some of their household costs.

Alba is asking for this loan to buy items such as manure, seeds, fertiliser and pest control to continue planting in order to improve profits and provide her family with better financial stability.
