A loan helped to buy compost and fertilizer, and to pay daily wages.

Jorge Elias's story

Elías is 28 years old and single. He lives with his parents and one sister who is a single mother. He has made his living farming since he was 20 years old. This work is the only source of income he can use to help support his household.

He is requesting this loan to invest in planting potatoes. He already has the seed and needs to buy compost and fertilizer, and hire day laborers.

Elías plans to keep growing his working capital and someday buy a plot of land to raise livestock so he can take care of his parents.
