More information about this loan
This loan is part of Apoyo Integral's program to help subsistence farmers located in high-risk regions of El Salvador, including coastal strips, river banks, and volcano fault lines. The program, which offers reduced interest rates, targets farmers who don't qualify for formal funding due to their low-income and geographical risk. By funding this loan, you are helping Apoyo and a local non-governmental organization extend risk-tolerant credit to even more farmers.
