A loan of $500 helped for the purchase of fertilizers.


Rafael David's story

Rafael resides in the Jiquilisco department of Usulután. He is a small-scale farmer, and is a family person. He lives with his wife and one son. He learned farming from his parents and has done this for four years, to sustain his family and provide for necessities.

He asks for a loan to prepare the land where he will grow corn. To do this activity he needs to purchase fertilizers and begin the whole process for the moment that he has to sow.

Rafael wants to increase production, generate bigger profits from crop commercialization, and watch over the well being of his family.
