A loan of $500 helped to buy fertilizer and treatments for pest infestations.


Jose Adrian's story

José lives with his wife. He grows corn, and he is part of a mariachi group. The group offers events for the evenings. He has been farming for 20 years, and he performs music with advance notice. He works every day tending to both of his businesses from 7:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m.

He will use the loan to buy fertilizer and treatments for pest infestations. He will apply them to his crops, and this will strengthen his crops and protect them from possible pest infestations. José’s intention is to improve his work in order to be able to live a decent life with his wife in a more secure home.
