A loan of $750 helped to buy seed, fertilizer and herbicides.

Jorge Alberto's story

Jorge Alberto is noted for being a hard-working, responsible and enterprising man. He has worked in farming all his life. Every year he plants corn and beans. After the harvest he puts a portion of the staple grains up for sale in the main sales locations in the area where he lives. A few weeks ago he began to prepare the land for this year's planting, as this is how he supports his household. He wants to begin planting as soon as possible.

To undertake this activity, he needs to invest in seeds, fertilizers and herbicides. This is why he is applying for this loan, in order to invest in the purchase of the agricultural supplies needed to start planting.

He is confident that he will obtain a good harvest, enabling him to pay back the loan and sustain his household, as he is one of the family's main financial supports.
