Maritza Del Carmen's story

Maritza is 36 years old and lives in her own home with her family. She makes a living from cultivating maize, beans, etc., and has done so for several years, which has given her the necessary experience to tend to her crops. She sells these in the basic grains markets, and uses her income in order to pay for her home expenses.

Maritza is requesting a loan in order to improve the land where she plans to plant, which is shown in the photograph, and to buy the necessary supplies, such as fertiliser, herbicides and manure, among others, so as to have a good harvest and to increase her income. In this manner she will be able to give her family better economic stability.
