A loan helped to purchase an inventory of supplies to grow plantains, such as urea and glyphosate and soil amendments to maintain the crop.


Gerson David's story

Gerson is a 31-year-old man, always faithful to his principles, a person who struggles and works for his family, for his dreams, and for a goal which is to enjoy a better present and have the tools to build a great tomorrow.

He works raising pigs and growing plantains, a business which he began in the year 2017 as an alternative to generate income because of job scarcity. Currently, due to the lack of capital, he is asking for a loan to purchase an inventory of supplies to grow plantains, such as urea and glyphosate and soil amendments to maintain the crop.

He hopes that, with the investment, he will be able to improve the productive processes, sales, income, and competitiveness in the zone.
