A loan of $650 helped to buy pea seeds and fertilizer.

Miguel's story

Miguel is a farmer; he’s married and lives in Sololá with his wife. He has six children three of which are already married, two work with him and one son is finishing his academic studies as a construction technician.

He works in agriculture planting peas, broccoli and corn at home since these are the ones that have the best market price in his region; he’s been doing this work since the age of 30.

Due to scarce economic resources he had to work and learn agriculture and was unable to attend any local school. Now that he sees his crops doing well, he needs more capital to continue working and growing more.

He’s requesting a Q 5,000.00 loan to buy pea seeds as well as organic fertilizer for the crop. He comments that among his dreams is to continue growing in agriculture and to have a better house for his wife and children.
