A loan of $1,000 helped purchase seeds & pay to prepare the land.


Juan's story

Sr. Juan was born January 31st in Cordillera Santa Cruz. He is married to Sra. Rosalin who was born in Sombrerito at Km5 of La Guardia. Both of them are farmers in Sombrerito where they have a parcel of land in which they work, but they also work the land of his mother-in-law since she does not have anyone to maintain it.


The money from this loan will be used to buy seeds and pay for the expenses associated with preparing the land for growing corn, potatoes, and rice. However, what they grow most is “achachairú”. Sr. Juan is a hard worker who is grateful to Emprender for the support that has been provided.
