Jose Santana's story

José is requesting a new loan because he wishes to reinvest in his businesses and the micro-finance institution offers great service and speedy processing. The loan will help to buy fertilizers, fungicides, and herbicides to give his crops better maintenance. He will also buy lime powder, firewood, and propane gas to make tortillas to sell.

The previous loan he invested in his business gave good results; he was able to buy what he needed to continue working in agriculture. He has earned the trust of new customers and his business has grown. These days, he also owns a tortilla-making business which he runs with his family. José shares that his business is earning him a better income allowing him to share a better standard of living with his family.
