A loan of $425 helped to grow sweetcorn.

Reynerio Jose's story

Reynerio is 39 years old, a farmer, and has two young sons who go to primary school and help him with farm work. Through his own efforts, he managed to increase his farm's production. He grows and sells produce such as rice, sweetcorn, broad beans, and tubers. From this activity, he derives an income to support his family. He also reinvests some of the profits towards buying even more seeds to sow. This is how his business keeps being prosperous, allowing him to improve his quality of life. He asks for this loan in order to grow sweetcorn, because he plans to sow more than he usually does, in order to profit more from it. His greatest dream is for his family to always have food on the table, and for his sons to grow into responsible, cultivated, and well-mannered adults.
