A loan of $500 helped to buy potato and corn seeds.


Pedro's story

Mr. Pedro lives in a community very far away from Torno called Planchada some 38 km from Torno where he has his land and works with his wife and 5 children in agriculture. They work growing corn, potatoes, yucca and peanuts. They have lived in the community for a long time; they also have 30 cattle where they get milk to sell to a factory. The money from the loan will be used to buy seeds for their potato and corn crops and to prepare the soil. All of the products that they grow they sell in the market in Torno with his children’s’ help. Mr. Pedro is a hardworking man and is very thankful to the institution for the support given to him. In the picture, Mr. Pedro is with his eldest son.
