A loan of $700 helped to buy agricultural supplies for his staple grain crops and to pay rent for the land.


Cristian Orlando's story

Cristian was only able to study until the sixth grade because there was a lot of poverty at home and he had to work. He is married and his partner does household work. They have 3 children who are studying.

Cristian works in agriculture and has 25 years of experience. He learned this from his father. He also sells ice cream and dairy products on a motorcycle. This helps him to bring sustenance to his family.

He will use the requested loan to buy agricultural supplies for his staple grain crops and to pay rent for the land.

Cristiano's future dreams are to have good crops and to sell them at a good price. He would also like to fix his house.
