A loan helped to buy corn, fertilizer.

Luis's story

Don Luis is an experienced farmer. He is 48 years old and lives in San Rafael Oriente in the department of San Miguel. He lives with his wife and two children, who are 26 and 23 years old, one of whom still depends on him. He has been farming for 35 years--since he was 11 years old, when his father gave him a field so he could learn how to cultivate. He has no fixed hours for his work.

Don Luis is asking for a loan to buy corn, manure, and fertilizer for this season's planting. These products will allow him to plant with enough care to obtain a good harvest. One of his goals is to become a big-scale farmer and obtain higher levels of corn production, and he must do everything he can to increase his business and look out for his family's well-being.
