A loan of $800 helped to buy crop seed and fertilizer.


Freddy Gilbert's story

Freddy Gilbert is 40 and lives with his wife and son, who is 8, in Ventanas, Rios province. He is a member of V.R.C. EL RECREO in San Vicente de las Lomas, whose members are farmers growing corn, rice, beans and soy. Freddy specializes in growing corn and beans on his property, which he sells in local markets, especially on Sundays. He is seeking this credit to buy crop seed and fertilizer, to meet his needs and help him to overcome challenges such as variable rainfall. His dream is to one day buy a machine to de-husk grain.
