A loan of $225 helped to buy compost, herbicides, and insecticides.


Jose Vidal's story

José lives with his family, his wife and a son. The son is 23 years old. He does not have relatives living abroad. He has been working since he was 35 years old as small farmer. His schedule is from 7 to 12 pm.

He has applied for a loan to invest in growing corn on two manzanas of land (about 3.5 acres). He will need to apply compost, herbicides, and insecticides, which are necessary for production. The crop will benefit him and his family; having a good production will improve their economic stability and sustenance.

His goal is to bring daily sustenance to his family through his work and to increase his production.
