Victoriano De Jesus's story

Victoriano lives in his own home with his 22-year-old grandson. He is a widower and has relatives who live abroad. Victoriano has worked in agriculture for more than 25 years. He works on a full-time basis every day of the week according to the planting season. Victoriano cultivates corn, beans, squash, and other crops.

The borrowed funds will be invested in the purchase of composts to strengthen his crops and the rent payment for a tractor to plow his land. In addition, he will invest in an irrigation system for his squash crops. The loan will help him acquire the necessary supplies to prepare his land for planting corn and squash.

His dream is to have an excellent harvest and help his grandson with his academic studies.
