Emerita's story

Emérita is 46-years old and lives with her husband and children in a relative's house. She makes her living growing corn and beans. She has been farming for a number of years, which has given her the experience she needs to get the best harvests. She sells the products of her harvest in the areas surrounding her community. Emérita already has a large clientele who prefer to purchase from her because of her quality, her good prices, and above all her good service. Emérita needs to invest in her crop, which is why she is requesting a loan that will allow her to purchase corn and bean seeds, insecticide, herbicide, fertilizer, compost, pest control etc. Emérita has good credit references from the people who know her, and she is very responsible. She affirms that she will be able to pay off her debt in the established time frame, and she also trusts that she will bring her household some financial security.
