A loan of $825 helped to pay for rent on the land she will farm.

Vanessa Elizabeth's story

Vanessa is 22 years old. She has a 9th grade education and lives with her partner, who works in construction. She doesn't have any children, so only the two of them live in the home.

Vanessa works in agriculture alongside her mother. She has only been farming for two years, but she learned from her mother. Her work allows her to supplement her partner's income from his construction work. She has never had another business. She lives six blocks from where she works and travels there by foot. Her life partner and a nephew are also involved in her business. Her schedule varies, but it can be from 6:00 am to 11:00 am.

She will use this loan to rent a plot of land to farm. This will improve her quality of life because she will be able to grow basic grains for her family and to sell. This will meet her need to keep farming. Her dreams are to keep on working and have children, which would give her even more reason to work. She will use the profit she makes to pay off this loan so that Credicampo continues to have trust in her.
