A loan of $850 helped to install a crop irrigation system.


Gilberto David's story

Gilberto is a very hardworking person who has been able to successfully grow his own vegetable crops. He learned farming from a neighbor who taught him how to cultivate, and then gave him work for approximately one year. Some time ago, in an effort to increase his income, Gilberto decided to start growing his own crops. His main challenge is that he is separated from the mother of his two children, who depend on him financially, and this makes his household financial situation difficult. Nevertheless, with his crops, he hopes to be able to improve this situation, which is why Gilberto is now requesting this loan in order to install an irrigation system for his crops. This system will increase his crops, which will in turn allow him to sell more produce.

His dream is to be able to have the financial resources needed to provide his children, ages 1 and 5, with a good education.
