A loan of $1,000 helped to invest in fertilizers, seeds and irrigation equipment.


Erasmo's story

Erasmo lives in Osicala, in Morazán department. He grows basic grains, corn, beans and sorghum. He is 59 years old and lives with his wife and a 16 year-old grandson. Erasmo sows three 'manzanas' of land (one manzana = 1.68 acres). Every year he prepares his land for the winter season.

Erasmo will invest in fertilizers, seeds and irrigation equipment. He is requesting a loan that will cover this expense and allow him to carry out his work. This investment will help him to increase his production.

Erasmo's dream is to set up an irrigation system on his property so that he has better conditions for his production. In the future, he would like to work with his own money and be independent.
