Due to floods that resulted from the storms during the second week of February, Victor’s crops were negatively impacted. He lost half of his pea and potato crops, resulting in less income from the sale of these products. This direct hit to his finances affected his ability to buy school supplies, construction materials for his home, and food so that his family could eat. To rectify this problem, Victor is requesting a loan in order to buy seeds (onions and carrots), agrochemicals, and organic fertilizer. This will enable him to generate more income that will improve his quality of life and stabilize his family’s finances. As a result, they can resume their path to prosperity.
