A loan helped to buy agricultural inputs for growing corn.


Santos Marcial's story

Santos is married, and his wife is responsible for the household duties. He has a son that is no longer dependent on him.

Santos works in agriculture, growing corn for many years which he learned from his father. The land where he grows is 10 minutes from his house by foot, and he works from 6:00 in the morning until 12:00 in the afternoon. In addition, he also works doing motorcycle deliveries for a bakery.

He needs this loan to buy agricultural inputs for growing corn. Santos dreams of having a bigger home and a new car.
