A loan of $1,125 helped to purchase fertilizers, insecticides, and fungicides to spray on his crops and guarantee their quality.


Henry Nelson's story

Henry is an entrepreneur who, approximately seven years ago, decided to start his own business. He learned about agriculture from his father, and has been doing this activity on his own. He has a blackberry crop, lilies, and tree tomatoes which he sells to generate income to support the household expenses.

He has seen how the winter has affected the quality of his crops, which means they urgently require a spraying of fertilizers, insecticides, and fungicides so that his crop will be of the best quality possible. However, he does not have sufficient capital to buy these things, which is why he hopes that a loan will give him the chance to buy the fertilizers, insecticides, and fungicides to spray on his crops and guarantee their quality.

He dreams that his crop will grow and he will have great sales from it, which will generate income that will allow him to give his parents a good quality of life and economic stability. In addition, he wants to save to enter into higher education, because so far his low income has not allowed for this.
