A loan of $1,000 helped to plant corn.

Jose Santiago's story

José, born on the 25th of May in the locality of Valle Grande, lives with Aidé who is a housewife. They have two older children who also make a living farming and raising livestock. They have a plot of land that is 35 hectares and suitable for farming and livestock on which they plant yucca, potato, and corn. All the corn that they plant is to feed their cows since they have 40 cattle. The rest that they plant is to sell in the locality's market directly from the producer to the consumer. They will use the money from the loan to plant corn and have been working with the institution for 6 series. He feels very thankful for the support they have given him.
