A loan of $725 helped to buy a crop of tamarind.

José María's story

In 1990 Mr. Jose Maria decided to work in farming. He began this business because he had worked as a food broker previously and was very familiar with the process.

Currently this 47-year old gentleman, along with one of his sons, plants 5 fields: 2 are corn, 1 is yucca, and the other 2 are beans. Besides these commercial crops, he will invest this loan in purchasing tamarind, which is in season, to later sell in the market.
