A loan of $600 helped to purchase fertilizer and herbicides.

Oscar Ovidio's story

Oscar, who works cultivating corn and beans and raising cattle, lives with his wife and their three children, who are 8, 10, and 12 years old. He has done this agricultural activity for fifteen years. He works every day from 6:00am until 3:00pm.

He is asking for this loan to purchase fertilizer and herbicides which are necessary to start growing corn and beans. This will help him have a pest-free planting and increase his ability to help his family.

His goal is to develop himself as a farmer and grow in livestock since this will also help his family and his children so that they feel financially supported so they can excel at their studies.
