A loan of $200 helped to buy compost, herbicides, and insecticides.


Santos Mauricio's story

Santos lives with his wife and two children. One child is seven years old and the other is six months old. He does not have any relatives living abroad. Santos grows corn and beans. Santos says that he has been in business for 10 years. He learned this line of work from his parents. His work schedule every day is from 6 A.M. to 3 P.M. As of this date, he has not had any problems in his work. Santos is requesting a loan because he needs capital in order to buy three sacks of compost, herbicides, and insecticides for his crops of corn and beans. This will help to strengthen his plantings and provide a harvest that will feed his family. His dreams and aspirations include being able to adequately provide for the needs of his children, such as food and an education.
