A loan of $700 helped to buy 4 sacks of sulfate, one of formula, herbicides for the pests and a bag of seed, among other things.

Julia Estebana's story

Julia is 37 years old and is a housewife. She studied until the seventh grade. Because of the economic situation that she and her parents lived in, it was impossible for her to finish her studies. Currently she is accompanied by her life partner, who is a farmer. She has four children - the eldest is married and the other three are studying in ninth, fourth and first grade.

She will use the loan to buy agricultural supplies such as 4 sacks of sulfate, one sack of formula, herbicides for the pests, a bag of seed, to prepare the land, among other things.

Her dream is that in the future the crops will give her good results, and finally profits to pay off her credit and have the door open for other loans. That way, she can help her children so they keep studying and can have better employment opportunities.
