A loan of $1,100 helped to purchase agricultural supplies, manure, fungicide, and seeds.


Jorge Orlando's story

Jorge is 31 years old and was born in the parish of Cahuasqui in a humble family. He finished school and began to work as a day laborer, but this work is very demanding and requires a lot of physical strength, so Jorge left for the capital to seek a better job. Now he has his own family, but says that the city has more expenses so he wants to undertake a new business in his native parish, which is growing beans.

Jorge needs a loan to begin with this work, he will purchase seeds, reeds, manure, and fungicides. Since he has a secure job in the capital, his brother will carry out the new enterprise as he is in the countryside. Jorge is very optimistic about this new investment since he will have additional income and will be able to cover the costs that come with living in the city. It will also benefit his family who is in the countryside.
