A loan of $450 helped to buy supplies for his farming business.

Luis Armando's story

Sr. Luis lives with his family in the rural town of Ticuantepe. His plans for the future are to grow a wider range of crops so that he can earn more and build a house. Don Luis suffered a difficult loss when cattle belonging to a neighbor invaded his fields and ate a large part of his crop, a loss his neighbor has refused to take responsibility for. He could have avoided the loss if he'd had a fence, but he didn't have the money to build one before. He is applying for a loan to buy a thousand seedlings for his pineapple crop, along with the fertilizers and other supplies he needs to cover his loss.
