A loan of $500 helped purchase seeds to plant corn.


Modesto's story

Mr. Modesto lives in Porvenir, a community that is located 25 kilometers from Santa Rita. This is the first time that he has worked with field partner Emprender. After a visit by Emprender to his community he was convinced by the ease of the loan and the speed of the paperwork. It has been 12 years since he purchased the parcel that he now works on. Mr. Modesto was born in Chuquisaca, he is single and is 47 years old. His brother lives in the same community and together they plant corn and rice. They also dedicate themselves to coal mining and raising animals. With this loan he will purchase seeds to plant corn. Mr. Modesto is very hardworking and is grateful for the opportunity granted to him.
