A loan helped to buy two liters of herbicide to kill weeds and to buy three bags of fertilizer.


Douglas Arístides's story

Douglas is 24 years old and completed high school. He is in a long-term relationship, and his partner works at home. They do not have children yet.

Douglas works in agriculture and has been in this field since he was 15. He father took him to the fields so that he would learn to do the work well. He walks for 15 minutes to get to his field.

He will use this loan in order to buy two liters of herbicide to kill weeds and he will also buy three bags of fertilizer and thus provide good nutrients for his plot.

He dreams of continuing to plant and saving enough to return to school. He would like to become a professional so that he can get a better job.
