Jose Alirio's story

José has worked a great part of his life in agriculture because his father was in this occupation and he learned it alongside him when he was very young. Since then this has been his profession and thanks to the experience he’s acquired today it’s his source of income to meet household expenses.

Due to changes in the weather the last few months, a large portion of the banana crops has been affected which is why José needs a loan to buy manure, insecticide and fungicide to refertilize the crops and have a successful harvest regardless of weather changes that might affect them. In this way he will be able to offer his customers good quality products and receive in turn good income for them. Also, he will continue making progress with his crop and his family will have a better quality of life.
