A loan of $1,000 helped to buy farm supplies and to pay labor costs.

Marcial's story

Marcial works in agriculture; he’s from Jinotega north of Estelí. He grows greens and basic grains. He started gaining experience while still very young. For him, the loans he’s gotten have been of great benefit for his business in that they have helped him produce good crop yields and above all they arrive when he most needs them to.

He’s asking for a loan to buy manure, fertilizer and gasoline for his irrigation pump and to pay labor costs to plant one manzana [Central American unit of land measurement] of tomatoes. He hopes to produce an excellent, high quality harvest like his previous ones and to sell all his production to repay the loan and to buy his own land so that he can stop leasing land.
