A loan of $575 helped to buy fertilizers and seeds for his farming operation.


Roberto Arturo's story

Roberto, for most of his life, has made a living in agricultural production. Through this activity, he has generated enough income to cover expenses for his home, where he lives with his wife and two children. Roberto has a vegetable farm, and sells his produce to his customers at a very good price.

Due to the effects of this past winter, which lasted longer than expected, Roberto has watched his crops fail to grow sufficiently. In hopes of changing this situation, Roberto is looking to buy fertilizers and seeds for his farm. Since he does not have sufficient capital to purchase these products, Roberto is requesting a loan that will give him the opportunity to purchase fertilizers and seeds for his farm.

Roberto hopes that his farm can continue yielding high quality products so that he can sell them at a good price. He dreams of having a large farm where he can generate many jobs, as well as provide financial stability for his children. Roberto longs to be able to improve the quality of life for his wife and two children, while also providing greater opportunities for financial progress.
