A loan of $900 helped to buy fertilizer, improved seeds, herbicides and land preparation.


Cruz's story

Cruz is requesting a new loan to continue farming corn. This time he will increase the land size by approximately 1.68 acres. He will also buy a larger quantity of fertilizer, improved seeds, herbicides and land preparation. He is hoping to increase production this season. He had a positive effect with the previous loan since he achieved production of the crops and created a well for irrigation. In his family everyone has maintained stable incomes and diets have improved.
