A loan of $1,000 helped for planting rice and yucca.


David's story

Mr. David was born in the community of El Torno. He is single and devotes himself to farming. He has his land in Los Limos, ten kilometers from Santa Rita. He grows rice, yucca, and a few vegetables for family consumption. But everything he grows he takes to sell at the area market. This is his first time taking out a loan with Emprender and he earns a living by farming.

By growing his products he was able to obtain his own plot of land three years ago, and since then has devoted himself to farming. He will use the money from the loan for preparing the land and purchasing seeds for planting rice and yucca. Mr. David is a very hardworking person, and appreciates the institution for the support it provides.
