A loan helped buy fertilizers and pay workers to help him cultivate vegetables.


Job Adalberto's story

Job is twenty-seven years old. He completed high school. He lives with his partner who is a homemaker.

Job is a farmer. Thanks to his father who taught him how to work when he was young, he can now earn an income to get ahead with his partner. He cultivates tomatoes, chile peppers, yucca, cucumbers, chayotes (squash). When his harvest is ready, he sells it to the vegetable venders.

He needs the loan to buy fertilizer and pay workers to help him cultivate the vegetables. Job plans for the future are to remodel his house so that when he has children they can live safely. He also strives to always have a good crop.
