A loan helped him to buy fertilizers and herbicides for his crops.


Élmer Alexander's story

Élmer did not have the opportunity to study. He has a domestic partner who works in household chores. He has a son who is a day laborer.
Elmer has worked for 24 years in agriculture and animal husbandry. He learned these jobs through a friend. The parcels are close to his house. He works from 5:00 am to 12:00 noon and his son is also involved.
Élmer will use the loan to buy fertilizers and herbicides for his crops. He dreams of having a lot of cattle, of increasing his farming production, and for his family to always have food.
