Víctor Orlando's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy fertilizers for his crops.

Víctor Orlando's story

Víctor completed his studied through the fourth grade. He is married and his partner takes care of the household duties and also raises small animals. They have two children.

Víctor works in agriculture by planting corn and beans. He learned this trade from his parents. His day begins at 6:00 A.M. and he finishes his work every day by 1:00 P.M. His wife also helps with the farm work. In addition, he raises pigs and sells oranges and mangos.

This loan will be used to buy 30 quintals [1 quintal = 100 kg] of fertilizers for his crops. Víctor hopes that God will keep him in good physical condition so that he can work and provide for his family’s needs.
