Jose Armando's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy a pump sprayer for fumigation, shovels, fertilizer and calcium for his crops.

Jose Armando's story

José is 49 years old, and lives alone in the country. He lacks certain basic services. He is very responsible. For more than 35 years he has had farming knowledge. He began to work as a day laborer. Later all his experience merged into a potato crop. He cares for his plants every day from six in the morning. He waters them, and removes the weeds, permitting them to grow and produce fruit, to later sell in the closest market.

He needs the money to buy fertilizer, calcium, shovels, and a pump sprayer to fumigate his crops. This will permit him to obtain income to cover his basic needs. In the future he would like to buy his own land.
