Faustino's story

Faustino lives with his wife and fifteen year old grandson. He is a farmer with more than twenty years of experience. He works full time growing vegetables such as tomatoes, cucumbers, chili peppers, corn, string beans, and other beans. He is requesting the loan to purchase tomato, chili, cucumber, and string bean seeds as well as fertilizer to begin planting and hopes that this loan will help him increase his harvest. Faustino’s goal is to work to support his grandson so that he can prepare for a professional career.
