A loan of $650 helped purchase of agricultural products such as fertilizer, cattle, and pigs.

Jose Nelson's story

Nelson lives in La Laguna Corinto canton, Marazón department. He lives with María, his wife, and their four children. The two older children are in school. The four children depend on Nelson's income.
When he was a boy, he began to work sowing grains and raising cattle. He is grateful to his father for teaching him this work. This loan will be invested in agricultural products such as fertilizer, cattle, and pigs. He will raise the animals and sell them in the Corinto city market. This investment will improve his production of corn and cattle and thereby generate income for basic household necessities.
His dream is to have a good production of corn, cattle, and pigs to improve the standard of living of his family.
