A loan helped to buy compost.


Segundo Byron's story

Byron is 30 years old. His civil status is single. He is humble and hard-working. Twelve years he began to work as a day worker. He wasn't able to continue going to school because of the lack of money. Five years ago, with all the money that he had saved, he decided to begin a small planting of potatoes, trying to obtain an additional income to be able to help with food for his parents and education for his siblings.

Byron needs the money to buy compost. He would increase his production and obtain greater earnings with which he would be able to continue helping his family.
