A loan of $800 helped to buy manure, seeds and to prepare the soil.

Silvio Jose's story

Silvio lives with his wife; he has four minor children attending school. He works growing basic grains and raising cattle. He’s spent his entire life in these activities since he learned them while very young from his father.

He requests a loan because he’s starting a new corn planting cycle and needs to have manure and seed on hand and to prepare the soil. This loan will help him make a good purchase in order to have a proper agricultural process that will insure a good harvest.

His objective with the loan is to be able to cultivate two manzanas [Central American unit of land measurement] of land and with the applied products increase corn production. He wants to work so that his family will have everything needed and a more comfortable life.
