A loan helped to buy manure and fertillzer for his corn and bean crops.
Jose Damian's story
José is a farmer. He grows corn and beans and also raises livestock. He lives in the company of his wife and two-year-old son. José has worked with livestock and in farming for ten years having learned from his father; to date he’s happy with his occupation. He is currently asking for a loan to buy farming supplies because he’s planting corn and beans and needs manure and fertilizer to strengthen his plants in order to insure the growth of the corn and the bean plants although his crop yields depend for the most part on the weather conditions. He hopes that the entire growing process will be correct and to have an abundant harvest that will allow him both to sell part of it and also that his family can feed itself thanks to this work.
