A loan of $350 helped to buy manure and fertilizers.


Buenerge's story

Buenerge is a gentleman who works growing corn and beans. He is 56 years old and lives in San Rafael Oriente, in San Miguel department, together with his wife and three children aged 22, 20 and 16. He has been farming for 35 years and works every day of the week. He works longer during the sowing and harvest seasons.

Buenerge currently needs a loan as he is starting the process of preparing his land and he needs to buy agricultural supplies (manure and fertilizers). The winter is approaching and the time is right to start sowing his crops. This loan will help him to cover the expense and he will have everything he needs to care for his new crops. He hopes for a good harvest.

Buenerge's main goal is to work his land. He has been in this business for many years and he does not plan to stop. He will continue helping his family, in particular he will support his children in their education.
