Jose Feliciano's story

Jose Feliciano, 28 years of age, lives in San Ignacio with his wife and three children. His wife works to help with household expenses and the children help with the agricultural work in their free time. Jose has been farming for the last eight years.


Their biggest problem is a lack of funding. Jose began farming with his parents' help. His plans for the future include improving their standard of living and working to conserve the soil. With this loan he will buy supplies and fertilizer to apply to cultivation, enabling him to obtain a good harvest.
