A loan of $300 helped to buy compost and fertilizer.

Juan Antonio's story

Juan grows corn and chiles. He lives with his parents, is married, and has two children aged 3 and 6. From the time he was very young, his father taught him farming, but for the past 10 years he has worked on his own to support himself.

He is seeking a loan to buy compost and fertilizer, with which he will prepare his land before he plants his corn and chiles. This will improve the condition of the soil so that his production will be greater and his harvests will be healthy.

Juan's dream is to be able to achieve financial stability, to be able to provide his family with everything they need, and to continue working hard.
