A loan of $1,200 helped to buy seeds.

Elmer's story

The borrower is from the Ichilo Province in the department of Cochabama, but he currently lives in the Manco Kapac community in Entre Ríos. He has a patch of land where he grows crops, and now he has the opportunity to plant mechanized rice near his land. He is requesting a loan from the institution for this investment. He is responsible and determined to get ahead on a daily basis. He earns a living growing and selling bananas, and the rice will be used to diversify his income and reduce the risk of plant disease in the industry. He has four years' experience in the sector and many positive goals for the future. He has become an independent farmer with the support of his parents.
