A loan of $1,050 helped buy seeds and fertilizers for his crops.

Cristino's story

Cristino lives in the Corinto section of Morazán. He dedicates himself to planting crops, and lives with his wife and small 4-year old daughter. He has been in farming for 20 years, having learned the process through a project managed by CRV-MAG that gave technical agricultural assistance to farmers.

He will grow tomatoes on two blocks of land, which is why he is requesting a loan to buy seeds and fertilizers. These supplies will help him provide good care for the crops and watch for any risk of plague. His goal is to always work in farming as is this a job he enjoys doing, and because yielding good production from the crops requires care and dedication. He hopes also that his family will be able to progress financially through his work.
