A loan of $500 helped to buy farming supplies, compost and fertilizers for planting..


Manuel De Jesus's story

Manuel lives with his wife and one child. Only he works, and he dedicates himself to the farming of livestock and crops. He started many years ago when he was working with his father. Currently he works his own farm, and has no fixed schedule.

Currently he is seeking a loan to purchase raw materials for agriculture such as compost and fertilizers. This purchase will allow him to have what is needed for carrying out the planting of corn, which he does year after year.

He wants to remain in business as a farmer, provide his family with what is needed for covering the necessities, and be in good financial condition to allow them to live with dignity.
