Marcelino's story

Marcelino lives in the El Transito department of San Miguel, El Salvador. He is a farmer, and lives with his wife and three children aged 6, 9 and 12. For the past 20 years, he has been dedicated to cultivating and selling corn and kidney beans, working every day and more than just during sowing season. He is asking for a loan in order to purchase fertilizer in order to begin cultivating these crops during the Winter season. This loan would tremendously help him in accomplishing this. Marcelino's objective is to continue with this work, and help his family by providing for the eduction of his children.
