Elmer Orlando's story

Elmer lives in Concepción Batres, in Usulután department. He is 33 years old and lives with his wife and two children aged 6 and 3. He is a livestock farmer and also a crop farmer. He learned his trade a long time ago. He doesn't work regular hours and his work helps him to provide his family with the food they need.

Elmer is requesting a loan so that he can buy farming materials such as manure, fertilizers and solutions for treating plant diseases. This loan will help his crops as he will be able to give them the care they need to grow and produce well. His goal is to obtain a good harvest, to continue working his land and to look out for his family's well-being.
