Maria Rosaura’s story
María is 78 years old. She has two children who are married. She is dedicated to farming and livestock and she always performed this work with her husband who died 14 years ago. To reach her crops, she walks a half km from her house. She works from 6 am to 10 am and pays laborers to help her.
With the support of the two previous loans, she was able to invest in farming and she has already repaid them completely. She is requesting a new loan to buy seeds, fertilizers, poisons and to pay for labor for her basic grain crops.
She dreams of cultivating more land and earning a good income when she sells her harvest.
