A loan of $200 helped to buy agricultural inputs and prepare the land to plant one hectare of basic grains.


José Bernabé's story

José never had an opportunity to study as his parents couldn't afford it. He is in a relationship and his partner does domestic work. He has three children who are studying.

José has been working in agriculture for 30 years, a trade that his parents taught him. They taught him how to earn a living honestly. The place he farms is 20 minutes from his house and he works from 6 am until 11am.

He needs this loan to buy agricultural inputs and prepare the land to plant one hectare of basic grains.

His dreams are to educate his children as well as he can and for them to study so they can earn an honest living.
