A loan of $225 helped to buy manure and herbicide.


Armando's story

Armando lives with his wife; he has three children who are 13, 9 and 5 years old. He does not have any relatives abroad. He works growing corn and beans, an occupation he’s been in for 20 years. He learned from his parents and his work schedule is from six in the morning to three in the afternoon.

He needs working capital which is why he decided to request a loan to buy manure and herbicide for his corn and bean crops. This will help him directly because he’ll buy all the farm supplies and thus help to feed his family. His dreams and hopes are to pay for his children’s schooling so that they will improve themselves and that they have food every day.
