A loan helped to pay labor costs to collect the corn, bean, and sorghum harvests and to pay for transport to bring them to his house.


José Luis Antonio's story

José is married, his spouse has a tortilla business, and he has three children, of whom the youngest depends on him and is going to school.

José works in agriculture. He grows corn, beans, and sorghum and learned it from his parents. He travels 4 kilometers from his house to the land he plants and works every day from early in the morning. In addition, he is a mason.

He needs the loan to pay labor costs to collect the corn, bean, and sorghum harvests and to pay for transport to bring them to his house.

José dreams of selling his harvests at a good price and of building a bathroom in his house.
