A loan of $750 helped to buy manure and fertilizers.


Jose Vitelio's story

José is a farmer who lives with his wife and 2 year-old son. He started farming when he was young and used to help his father. He learned the process and now this is the work that helps him to feed his family. He grows his crops on rented land and doesn't work fixed hours.

José is requesting a loan to buy agricultural supplies, prepare his land and start sowing his crops. He will buy manure and fertilizers. This purchase will allow him to work properly and grow his crops in the hope of obtaining a good harvest.

José's dreams are to grow and obtain a good harvest. He will sell some of his crops and the rest will be eaten by his family.
