A loan of $325 helped buy manure and fertilizers for his corn crop.


Jose Reynaldo's story

Jose is a farmer who lives with his wife in their own house. His work is in agriculture: he has sown corn for some time, and this work has helped him pay for family necessities.

At present, he needs a loan to buy manure and fertilizers. With these supplies he will be able to prepare his farm land so that the corn can grow and produce, although there is always the risk that comes with winter which can affect the crop

For Jose, obtaining good harvests is a means of achieving his objectives, because always upon initiating this job, his goal is to have a good production, abundant and healthy, so that he can sell it and share it with his family.
