A loan of $250 helped to buy manure, fertilizer and pesticide.


Mario's story

Mario lives in San Rafael Oriente in the department of San Miguel. He has been farming for 30 years, a trade that he learned from his parents. He works every day from 6am until 3pm. He lives with his family, and has 3 children aged 11, 15 and 19 years, who are financially dependent upon him. Now, Mario is ready to start planting corn and beans, and so he is requesting a loan to purchase manure, fertilizer and pesticide. This investment will help him to have everything he needs to put his crops in this year.

His goal is to continue harvesting the land, working hard to provide for his family.
