A loan of $225 helped to buy four sacks of manure.


Jose Santos's story

José, 56, lives with his wife and three children who are 15, 8 and 1 year old in their own house. He works growing corn and is able to support his household this way. He learned this occupation from his father and has been doing it for 25 years for his family. His wife helps him with some of the planting chores.

José is about to start planting corn and is requesting a loan because he needs to buy four sacks of manure because this material is very necessary to strengthen the crops and increase production. The loan will be of great help to him because he’ll be able to do his work with no delays and with the necessary supplies to guarantee a good harvest.
