Marisol, 43, studied up to the eighth grade. Her parents no longer had the economic resources to be able to give her a better education. She has a companion, who works in agriculture, and a son.

Marisol has worked in agriculture since the age of 15 because her parents were farmers. Currently she has worked for 15 years as a domestic worker. She's a woman with a lot of ideals and a great desire to improve herself in life.

She'll invest her loan in buying two young bulls and a cow. That way she'll have another source of income next year, because she'll be able to sell them at a better price with the help of her husband, who will be responsible for taking care of the bovines.

Marisol dreams of improving her house, which has a dirt floor and holes in the metal sheets where the water comes in when it's rainy. In addition, she wants to keep on working to have more cattle and improve her quality of life.

More information about this loan

This loan is part of a CrediCampo project to help rural farmers living in extreme poverty plant basic grains to feed their families. Excess product is sold on the local market. These loans are smaller than the typical loans offered by this field partner, and guarantee requirements are also reduced. Individuals who receive this type of loan also get access to technical assistance, information on good environmental practices and increased access to farm inputs like fertilizer. This is considered a high risk loan due to the population and loan purpose, and CrediCampo is one of the very few institutions in El Salvador willing to working with these farmers.
