A loan helped to purchase improved seeds, fertilizers and herbicides to plant corn and beans.

Óscar Eliseo's story

Oscar is married. His wife works preparing and selling of local food. He has two children who depend on him.

Oscar works in agriculture, sowing corn and beans. He learned it from his father. He travels 1km from his house to the field where he plants and works from 6:00 to 11:00 am. In addition, he is a bricklayer.

He needs the loan to buy improved seeds, fertilizers and herbicides to grow corn and beans.

Oscar dreams for his children not to lack anything.
