A loan helped buy manure, pesticide and irrigation hoses.


Nencia Del Carmen's story

Nencia is an incredible woman who is 64 years old. She lives alone with no one to help her maintain her crops; which is very hard work for a woman of her age.

Her home and her crops are both maintained by her work, and although she lives very modestly, she has everything she needs to be happy.

Nencia is requesting a little help to get together some work capital to do two things: invest in manure and pesticides, and to pay for a day laborer whom she uses sporadically to do the work that's not humanly possible for her to do.

Support this adorable, hard-working woman in her old age who has no one else but you to help her, so she can continue the work that provides her with her daily livelihood.
