A loan of $600 helps to buy agricultural supplies to plant crops.


José Arquímides's story

José, 31, studied until ninth grade. He is in a common law marriage and his partner works as a homemaker. They have two children that depend on both parents.

José has been a farmer since he was 10, work that he learned from his father. Today he does this to care for his spouse and children. On top of this, he has knowledge of livestock management.

He needs the loan for agricultural supplies to plant crops.

José dreams of continuing his work and that his children have the opportunity to study.

This loan is special because:

It enables farmers to plant basic grains to feed their families.
