A loan of $1,000 helped buy corn and wheat seeds.

Holger Deifilio's story

Holger is 48 years old, married and lives with his wife and children in the parish of San Pablo, located in the canton of San Miguel.

The members of the “UNION AND HOPE” cooperative find themselves located in San Pablo, located 30 minutes from San Miguel. They dedicate themselves to growing corn, potatoes, and to the business of selling vegetables and other items.

Holger dedicates himself to farming, planting corn and wheat, work he has been carrying out for a long time. He makes his purchases in San Miguel and sells his products at the markets in San Pablo and San Miguel.

He requests this loan to buy corn and wheat seeds. The credit has helped him augment his income and his production. He has faced challenges, such as a lack of workers and changes in climate, that sometimes have damaged his crops. His dream is to make improvements to his home.

He very much enjoys celebrating at the carnival.
