A loan of $425 helped to buy supplies, manure, fertilizers, and weed killers.


Prospero's story

Prospero is 33 years old, single, and the father of a son. He lives with his mother, brothers, and 2-year-old child in Chillanes in Bolivar province. Prospero is a farmer, who grows corn, cassava, and oranges. He also sells oranges.

He is requesting this loan so that he can buy supplies, manure, fertilizers, and weed killers. With this loan he will be able to buy the supplies for planting. He makes his purchases and sales in Chillanes and every two weeks in San Miguel.

His dream is to give up this job, get his degree, and open a tourism agency. His physical handicap and its psychological effects are challenges he faces, along with the fall in prices for his products. In his free time, he likes to play indoor soccer, read books, and enjoy the Jesus the Great Power festivals.
