A loan of $1,325 helped to buy agricultural supplies to prepare the land and continue farming carrots, tomatoes and onions.

Francisca's story

Francisca finds herself very happy and thankful for the blessings God has given her. Her first financial loan allowed her to buy agricultural supplies which helped her vegetable crops (carrots) and at the same time helped her buy certified seeds to plant a new crop to increase the production volume, the sales and therefore the family's income.

Thanks to the purchase of supplies, she was able to get a profitable amount of carrots, which she sold at a very good price, getting a reasonable income, which allowed her to get out of her predicament. With the profit she made, she bought new seeds to start farming again as well as being able to buy fertilizer to help a small plot of land where she has planted onions and tomatoes to be able to generate a larger income from that crop at the end of the season.

Her first loan was very helpful for her to be able to meet her goals and continue working, in such a way that today she is asking for a second loan with which she will buy other supplies and she will be able to prepare more land and have it good and ready for the next four months.
