A loan of $500 helped to purchase fertilizer, pesticides, and insecticides.


Francisco Luis's story

Francisco lives with his family. He has two children, but they don't live with him. He earns his living in agriculture, growing corn. He is self-employed; he doesn't have a fixed schedule for doing his work in the fields and he already has a lot of experience in his work.

He is requesting a loan for the purchase of agricultural supplies like fertilizer, pesticides, and insecticides. This purchase will allow Francisco to be able to have a crop with the necessary measures taken to prevent infestations and also to prevent weeds, with the objective of the crop being more productive.

His plan for the future is to generate a good harvest, having customers to whom he can distribute that harvest; this will allow him to generate income for different household needs.
