A loan helped to buy fertilizers and fungicides to apply to the land where he has planted citrus trees.


Marvin Alejandro's story

Marvin went to school through the eighth grade. He is in a relationship, and his life partner devotes herself to the household chore. He has one small child.

Marvin has been growing and selling citrus fruit for five years. He learned this from his father. That land that he cultivates is one kilometer from his house, and he gets there by walking. He also works as a blacksmith.

He needs the loan to buy fertilizers and fungicides to apply to his land where he has planted citrus trees.

Marvin dreams of having abundant harvests, selling them for a good price, repaying the loan punctually, and giving his family a better quality of life.
