Isidro's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy fertilizer, insecticide, seeds, and soil amendments to grow corn.
Isidro's known in his community as a responsible person who is dedicated to growing basic grains and raising livestock. He inherited the business from his parents and has worked in it for 25 years with his own family, which gives him an advantage because he doesn't have to pay for labor. He starts work at 6 in the morning and finishes at 2 in the afternoon. Isisdro's in a relationship and lives with his life partner and his two children, ages 25 and 22, all of whom depend on the income he earns. He's requesting a loan to buy fertilizer, insecticide, seed, and 8 quintals of soil amendments to grow corn for both family consumption and to sell. This investment will be a big help to him for getting an abundant crop without problems with disease. The risks are changes in temperature and the variable price of agricultural inputs in the market. Isidro's dream is to keep on working so he has a profitable job that provides the income he needs to give his family a better future.
