A loan of $200 helped to prepare the land for planting.

Delia De Jesús's story

Delia, age 38, went to school through the second grade. The lack of motivation and the needs that she experienced at that time did not allow her to go to continue going to school. She is married, and her life partner has been working in agriculture for 20 years. She has four children. The three oldest go to school and live with them. They are the only ones who are dependent upon Delia.

She is a housewife. She has also been working in agriculture since she was little and her father took her to the crops. This is because they were no big brothers to help them. The land where she works is one kilometer from her house. She gets there by foot. A brother is the one who is most involved, and they work together from six in the morning until twelve noon.

The loan will be invested in preparing the land for planting. Her dream is to first have what the family most needs. Therefore, she hopes to always work as long as God gifts her with good health and life.
