A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase potato seeds.

Tomas's story

37-year-old Tomas is not married but lives with his partner with whom he has 3 children aged 10, 8 and 5 years. He is a farmer and has a plot of land in the town of Villa Esperanza.

This loan is his first cycle with the institution, and Tomas will use this loan to buy seeds for planting potatoes. The main challenge that Tomas faces in his business is the weather, as the rain can harm his crops during this season. Tomas will use this loan to improve the quality of life for himself and his family. His desire is to continue enjoying health and work hard to overcome poverty. He is happy and grateful to the institution for the support.
