A loan of $500 helped to buy 1000 chile plants and fertilizer.


Luis Alonso's story

Luis works farming chile peppers and corn. He is 24 and lives with his mother and two brothers. He learned to grow corn and chile from his uncle. He has five years of experience working for his family. In this time he has gained much experience.


Luis is asking for a loan to buy 1,000 chile plants as well as fertilizers. It will be a great help to provide the resources necessary to be able to have a good harvest. Luis's goal is to improve his standard of living and the productivity of his land and to support his brothers and his mother so they can go forward together as a family.
