A loan of $1,000 helps to buy agricultural supplies.

Jose Ignacio's story

Jose is 38 years old. He is an honest, responsible, hard-working man. He is in a relationship and has three daughters who are his greatest blessing, and he is providing for their education.

Jose and his wife make a true work team. They work together as caretakers of a crop of peaches. Here they are provided housing. His wife makes woven items while Jose organizes the workers and cares for their parcel of land where they grow broad beans, carob beans, beans and carrots, depending upon the season. In this way, they have succeeded in getting a little piece of property where they hope to have their house.

He is requesting this new loan to invest in agricultural supplies for the maintenance of his bean crop, since the production and harvest of the crop depends upon the care that he gives it.

Jose's earnings depend upon this, so that he can improve his daughters' quality of life and their education.
