Diego's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy farming supplies and to remodel his home.
Every morning, the cool morning breeze and the rising sun witness Diego, 59 and married, walking the roads of Solola on his way to his plot of land that is waiting to feel Diego's sowing and harvesting hand. Diego has worked as a farmer in his community for 25 years. In the village he sells the vegetables that he has sowed and harvested in his land. Some of Diego's children help him with the farming. He has 8 children, 5 of whom are already married. The other three are still young and they are studying. The fact that Diego's only source of income is farming and the need to remodel his home have led him to ask for this loan so he can live more at ease and have his land and family better taken care of. In this way, the sun and the wind will continue to watch and admire Diego's path and the example he sets for his family, that of a road of hard work, sacrifice, dedication and hope for the future.
