A loan of $650 helped to buy corn and bean seeds for his crop.


Felix's story

Félix, age 51, is married and has a lovely family with five children between the ages of 12 and 25. This family lives in a community in the Porvenir village.

With the desire to generate income and for his family to get ahead, Félix works as a master builder. He has been managing works in different places in his community for 20 years. However, in order to get other earnings he also works in agriculture.

Félix is a person who puts a lot of effort into his work in order to improve his family’s living conditions. He now thinks it is necessary to get a loan to buy corn and bean seeds. It is very important to him to plant these crops in order to have enough food for next year.

His biggest desire is to increase his crops and to improve his earnings for his family.
