José Alex's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support


A loan helped to buy fertilizer for corn, and to fix a small shed where grain is stored.


José Alex's story

José attended school through 4th grade. He is married and his wife takes care of the home. He has two children, who are in school.

José has been a farmer for 21 years, a trade he learned from his father. He walks 3.5 kilometers from home to his plot of land and works from 6:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. His children help him in their free time. José also provides transportation services with his car.

José will use the loan to buy fertilizer for corn, and to fix a small shed where grain is stored. His dream is to have a good harvest and support his children in becoming professionals.
