Nancy Helena's story

Elena lives in a place where the majority of people have farming as their main source of income. She is married and has four children who are three, seven, 11, and 19 years old. Of them, the three older ones are studying. Along with her husband, she works hard to be able to pay for all of the expenses related to maintaining her household. Elena is going to invest this loan in purchasing fungicides and compost and paying for helping hands that will help her care for her plants. She is a Colombian woman who hopes to have a good harvest and continue working in order to continue living in Ecuador because here her children have a better quality of life.
