A loan of $1,000 helped hIRING WORKERS TO HELP HARVEST HIS CROPS.


Santos's story

Santos, who has 2 children, was born on the 1st of December 1986, in Andrés Ibáñez, Santa Cruz. Santos drives a motorcycle-taxi, and this has been his principal activity for 10 years. He also is engaged in agriculture and has bought some land that he farms. He has 194,226 hectares on which he sows corn, watermelon, maní (a basic root crop), and other products. With this activity, he maintains his family, while his wife dedicates herself to household work and caring for their 2 children. He is a responsible person and worker, always thinking about his family's well-being.

With this loan, Santos will hire laborers to help in harvesting his crops, which can then be sold in the local market in Torno. He is very grateful to Emprender for the credit opportunity it offers.
