A loan of $1,050 helped to buy fertilizer and an irrigation system for his peas and beans.


Manuel Salvador's story

Manuel Salvador, thirty-one, has been in agriculture for twenty years, having learned the trade from his father. He currently grows peas and beans on a plot of land he rents on an acquaintance's farm. Over the winter his crops have had disease and done poorly, so Manuel Salvador needs to buy fertilizer and an irrigation system to help them do better and produce a high enough quality of vegetable for him to sell. That way he can increase his income and improve the quality of life for his wife and seven-year-old son.
