A loan of $500 helped to buy natural and chemical fertilizers.


Carlos Gilbel's story

Carlos lives in San Rafael Oriente in the San Miguel department. He is a farmer. He lives with his wife and their three children, ages 11, 9, and 5. He has been growing corn and beans for 12 years.

He now needs a loan to buy natural and chemical fertilizers because he will be starting the work of planting. This loan will help him to have the necessary supplies to be able to continue with his work because his family depends upon him.

His objectives are to work for his family so that they do not lack their daily sustenance and for his children go to school.
