A loan of $300 helped to buy seeds, insecticides, fertilizer, herbicides, etc. and to improve the land.


Edelmira De Jesus's story

Edelmira is 42 years old and lives with her family in their own home. She works cultivating corn and beans. She has been working in agriculture for 15 years and this has given her much experience that allows her to produce better crops. When her crops are ready, she goes to sell them at different markets near her home. She has many customers who prefer her crops for the quality, good prices and, above all, the great service. She needs to invest and, for this, she is requesting a loan that will allow her to buy seeds, insecticides, fertilizer, herbicides, etc. and to improve the land shown in the photograph. She assures that she will be able to pay off the debt in the established time period and, at the same time, she is confident that she will raise the economic security of her household.
