Castro's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy farm inputs such as certified fertilizers and seeds to improve his farm, and use the profits to build a modern house.

Castro's story

This is Castro (pictured outside his mud house), a determined farmer. He is polite, devoted, responsible, and hardworking. Castro works by raising animals and different crops. He began this work out of economic necessity. Castro started practicing mixed farming few years ago. In other words, he grows maize and also keeps dairy cows.

Castro has gained so much experience during his years of farming. He believes that being involved in food production is a way to empower people to live a healthier life. Although Castro has been making profits through farming, not everything has been easy for this humble and industrious father. His farm has not been producing as much of a harvest lately due to a lack of fertilizer and good seeds to improve his outcome.

Castro is borrowing this loan to buy farm inputs (such as certified fertilizers and seeds) to improve his farm. With this loan, Castro will be assured of a good harvest. This will translate into more profits and income.

Together with his family, Castro is very thankful for your warm consideration and helping hand.
