Ma Angel's story

Ma Angel is a 45-year-old, tenacious woman who is very strong despite her age. She hasn't stopped dreaming big. She was unable to complete a primary school education due to a lack of economic resources, since she is from an economically humble family.

She has her own home and lives with her five dependent children and her husband. They help her to tend to her crops, which include corn, beans, and sorghum. Maria Angel is very experienced since her parents taught her at a very young age how to work the land. She inherited her land from her parents and it is located 100 meters from her home. She walks to the land every day.

Her customers include different intermediaries in the are, family, friends, and others. She currently requests a loan from COMIXMUL to invest in the purchase of certified corn and bean seeds, and 12-24-12 and 18-46-0 fertilizer, which will help her to provide excellent care and protection to her crops.

Her future plans are to save money to continue to increase her crops and strengthen her estate for her children, since one of their greatest challenges is graduating so that they can become academically prepared individuals with many options in life.
