A loan of $400 helped to buy farm supplies and to do home improvements.


Tomas's story

Tomas, 56, is a hardworking man who lives just with his wife. He has a small parcel of land where he grows corn and beans that he subsequently sells at wholesale to various customers be they markets or stores. His business is quite stable and he wants to invest in it in order to earn higher profits.

Tomas is asking for a loan to buy farm supplies to improve his crops and also to make some improvements to his house because the rainy season is approaching and he needs to repair the roof and walls.

With this Tomas hopes to have abundant harvests and a stronger house that can withstand the severe winter without leaks or risks. He’s very happy because he’ll have the resources necessary to reach his goals and life alongside his wife will be more prosperous.
