Lorenzo's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase agricultural supplies to improve the yields of his crops.
The land has been blessed with hands that like to work and care for it. It is dignified work and it is worthwhile to admire the men who engage in it for years and for a lifetime. The land without the farmers engaged in cultivating it would not give the crops that generally sustain an entire generation. Thirty-four years old, single with five children that he supports, two of them already living away with families, and three being school students that are near his community, Lorenzo has as his activity agriculture which he later sells in the community market in order to obtain an income for himself and his family to improve his living conditions. In regards to the loan, he is going to use it to invest in agricultural supplies to improve the yield of his crops and thus be able to have adequate living conditions for himself and his family. One of Lorenzo’s greatest desires is the planting of five areas of onion in order to have much larger sales than he has now and to have financial earnings in order to repair his home to improve his living conditions.
