Victor's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy farming resources (seeds and fertilizer).
Victor is 45 years old. He is a hard-working person. He lives in a community far from town. Since he was little, he began to work in agriculture along with his parents. As time passed, he built his home. He married and now has three children who are still dependents economically. Each day he works hard to get ahead and support his family. Due to poverty, he had to start working as a laborer. The frost natrual disaster meant that his products did not grow well. This disaster affected his income and he did not get the income he hoped for since he had planned to have a favorable harvest. Where he lives they only harvest once a year and it is not irrigated and then have to hope for a rainy season to plant their products. Currently, he is requesting a loan to buy agricultural resources (seeds and fertilizer) and therefore increase his production since he has not been left with any capital. In this way, he can improve his family's quality of life.
