A loan of $1,425 helps to maintain his avocado crops so that he can have a more productive harvest.


Francisco Mariano's story

Francisco is a hardworking man who is 60 years of age. He has six children and lives in the town of Acari. Francisco engages in farming activities, having learned this trade at a very young age from his parents. He learned how to care for different types of crops and how to fertilize each one.

Francisco is requesting a microloan so that he can maintain his avocado crops in order to have a more productive harvest. In the future, he hopes to invest his earnings in the expansion of his crops and to continue enjoying good health.

Whenever he goes out, Francisco must wear a mask since this is a requirement of the Peruvian government to stop the spread of COVID-19.
