A loan helped to buy fertilizers and herbicides, and to pay for labor to maintain his crops.


Cristian Josué's story

Cristian studies through his first year of high school. He is single and has a dependent daughter. She does not attend school yet.

Cristian makes a living in agriculture. He has grown corn and beans for 15 years, and he learned the trade thanks to his parents. The plot where he plants is 15 minutes from his house by foot. He works from 6:00 am to 12:00 pm.

He needs a loan to buy fertilizers and herbicides, and to pay for labor to maintain his crops.

Cristian dreams of having a larger, more comfortable, and respectable home.
