A loan helped to pay for the rental of a corn threshing machine.


José Francisco's story

Jose went up to fourth grade in school. He is married and his wife takes care of the house. He has one young child who is a student.

Jose is a farmer and specifically raises corn. He has eight years of experience doing this work which he learned from his father. He walks two kilometers from his house to the plot of land and works from 7:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. He also raises pigs.

Jose needs the loan so he can pay for the rental of a corn threshing machine.

He dreams of always achieving good harvests thereby improving his family's living conditions.
