A loan of $1,000 helps to purchase seeds, soil amendments, fertilizers, and other agricultural supplies.


Aulicio Franklin's story

Franklin is a young man, 20 years old, who is learning to earn a living independently. He lives with his parents and siblings in the zone of Gualpi, in Chical parish.

He works growing tropical fruits. He began this undertaking with the help of his parents who previously helped him with the knowledge about caring for his crops.

Franklin has gotten good successes from the crops, so he wants to continue boosting them and is asking for help to purchase seeds, soil amendments, fertilizers, and other agricultural supplies. In this way, he hopes to become a great farmer and, so, to support his family.
