A loan helped to purchase manure and pesticides.


Flor De Maria's story

Flor, 29, has a seventh grade education. She is in a common-law relationship, and her partner works as a day laborer. They have two small children, and live in their family home. When Flor was very young, her mother taught her how to make hammocks. Now that she is in a relationship, she is working in the same trade, with the goal of earning additional income to help her partner. She needs the loan to purchase manure and pesticides as this is the season when basic grains are grown. Flor’s dream is that her children have a good future and are academically prepared.
