A loan of $1,025 helped to buy agricultural supplies like seeds, fungicides, manure, and fertilizers.

María Dolly's story

María is a 35 year old woman from the countryside. She is married and the mother of 4 children who she has raised with effort and dedication.
Since she got married, she has learned all about farm work as her husband has land where she grows produce and she also works as a day laborer harvesting for neighboring farmers. In this way, she earns enough to help her husband cover the household expenses.
The loan that she is requesting will be used to buy agricultural supplies such as seeds, fungicides, manure, fertilizer, with which she will enrich the soil before resowing. This way, she will have a more productive harvest that will generate more income when the produce is sold.
María dreams of growing a greater variety of produce, including vegetables, in order to take advantage of the land available at her husband's farm and to increase the profitability of the business and guarantee a better quality of life for her family and offer her children a better education.
