Walter Emmanuel's story

Walter lives in Transito, in the department of San Miguel. He is 21 years old, single, and lives with his grandfather. Together they farm maize. His grandfather taught him to farm; they own their farmland and have a flexible work schedule. Currently, Walter is preparing the land for planting but he hasn't purchased the necessary supplies to take care of his crop. Thus, he is requesting a loan to buy manure, chemical fertilizers, and pesticides. These agricultural inputs will help him take care of his crop throughout the season and obtain a better maize yield at harvest. Walter dreams of improving his and his grandfather's quality of life. He also hopes for a good harvest this season.
