A loan of $175 helped to buy four bags of fertilizer and a bag of granulated herbicide.

Fernando's story

Fernando, a widower, lives with his parents. His wife died two years ago. He grows corn. He learned this work from his father, and he has been working on his own for six years.

He is asking for a loan in order to purchase supplies such as four bags of manure and one bag of granulated herbicide. These materials will help Fernando to be able to protect his crops from infestations and increase production capacity. This loan will be a big contribution so that he may continue doing his work and be able to have a good harvest.

His aspiration is to be able to improve his income and support his parents, and also to improve the capacity of his crops.
