A loan helped to buy manure, fertilizers, and herbicides in order to better develop his corn crop and in this way achieve a more abundant harvest.


Jose Herminio's story

José is 66 years old and he is married. His wife is 58 years old and is a teacher. They have two children, who are already married. José’s business consists of working in agriculture. Specifically, he grows corn, and he also raises milk cows. He learned to do these activities thanks to his parents, so he already has a lot of experience backing him up.

He has decided to request a loan in order to buy manure, fertilizers, and herbicides in order to better develop his corn crop and in this way achieve a more abundant harvest. He will also use another part of the capital to pay the salary of the workers he will hire to perform the farm work at the right time. His goal is to have more corn for family consumption as well as to sell, in such a way that his income improves and he can meet all of his obligations.

His aspirations are to continue strengthening his business and to improve his family’s quality of life.
