A loan helped to purchase fertilizers to apply to the yucca he has planted.


Manuel De Jesús's story

Manuel is 68 years old. He never had the opportunity to attend school. He has a partner, who works selling meat and sausage at the market in their community. He has five children, and the youngest one depends on him and is going to school.

Manuel has worked in agriculture for more than 40 years. He plants corn, beans, and yucca, and he learned from his family. He travels two kilometers from his house to the parcel of land he plants, and he works from 6:00 am to 12:00 noon.

He will use the loan to purchase fertilizers to apply to the yucca he has planted. Manuel dreams of giving his daughter a good academic education and of enjoying a better quality of life.
