A loan of $650 helped to buy agricultural inputs to grow corn and pay for labor.


Mario De Jesús's story

Mario is 36 years old and worked hard to get a college degree. He is single and doesn't have any children.

Mario is a farmer. He is very hardworking and entrepreneurial. He learned to grow corn from his father when he was very young. He is also a teacher at an educational center in the community where he lives. The school is a 30 minute walk from his house. He works from 6:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.

He needs a loan to buy agricultural inputs and pay for labor.

Mario's dream is to have an excellent harvest and to keep supporting his parents.
