Salome's story

Mr. Salome A. B. is 53 years old and lives in San Ignacio. He is married and his wife is a homemaker. He has three adult children who are in school, and he works as a pineapple farmer. Infection by pests and diseases are among the problems that Mr. Salome has faced with his land. This is the reason why he is requesting a loan again. He will buy fertilizers and other agricultural supplies, which will allow him to better maintain his crops and to improve his output. This will be his eighth loan cycle and he says that he feels very grateful for the support offered to him. His harvest has increased and he has been able to expand his lands, which he attributes largely to the benefits of his household's improved economic situation.
