A loan of $400 helped to buy fertilizer and herbicides for planting crops.

Cristobal's story

Cristóbal lives with his wife and three children, ages 9, 8 ​​and 4 years old. He is devoted to growing corn and beans and has been doing this activity for 15 years, working from six o'clock in the morning until three in the afternoon in the place where he gets the necessary work done. Cristobal also works as a security guard, and on his free days he works in agricultural activities.

At the moment he is starting to plant a new seasonal crop and for this reason needs to buy some materials that will help prevent pests in the fields. For that reason he is asking for a loan that will help him with the financial resources to invest in fertilizer, herbicides, insecticides and other materials that can be applied at planting so that he can be more confident of having good production.

Christopher's aspiration is to work to support his family, since they all depend on him, so his desire is to excel in the cultivation of corn and beans and thus obtain better harvests.
