A loan of $750 helped to buy natural fertilizers and corn seeds for the next planting.

Cayin's story

Cayin is 23 years old, and he is a hard-working young man. He lives with his wife, Ana María, and their two daughters, Nayaly and Kelly. They take care of the children in their own house in the town of Chacas.

When he was very young he learned how to take care of the land and to live from it. Also, he had to face the responsibility of having a family when he was very young.

His main crops are corn and squash. He takes care of them with great devotion. He does not now have his own land. Therefore, he works in a parnership, which is to say that he gets farm land from a person on the condition that he produces on it, cares for it, and fertilizes it. He is very devoted, and as a young man with initiative, he seeks out his own buyers. The buyers come to these fields to negotiate for the now mature products. In turn, he works plowing the land. His youth gives him the strength he needs to direct the bulls. This way he gets extra money that helps him with his finances.

He belongs to the Sarita Colonia communal bank, and this is their second loan with MF. He is grateful for the opportunity they are giving him because he will be able to improve his business. He pledges to be punctual with his payments. He likes working in his communal bank where everyone is responsible and supportive.

He will use the requested money to buy natural fertilizers and corn seeds for the next planting.
