A loan of $425 helped to buy agricultural inputs for growing corn and beans, to prepare the land and pay laborers to help him.


José Valmore's story

Jose only went to school until first grade, but he still learned to read. His wife takes care of the household chores. They live alone now that their children are grown.

Jose is a farmer, growing corn and beans. He learned the trade from his parents, and later it became his primary source of income to support his family. His field is close to his home. He works from 5:30-11:00 AM.

He needs this loan to buy agricultural inputs for growing corn and beans, to prepare the land, and to pay laborers to help him. His dream is for God to give him good health so that he can keep working and keep having corn and beans for his well being.
