Mayra Del Carmen's story

Mayra is 34 years old, is married and has one child who is dependent on her. Her husband works in agriculture. She studied up to Grade 7 and then due to a lack of financial resources had to quit school. She worked in the fields with her father and took care of the animals.

Mayra will use this loan to purchase agricultural inputs to prepare the land to plant corn. She will buy 4 bags of fertilizer, corn seed, and pay for labor. In the future she hopes to have a good harvest, generate good income from selling her product and at the same time have food to feed her family.
