A loan of $850 helped to buy fertilizers, irrigation and seeds to get his crop ahead and maintain it in the harsh winter.


John Jairo's story

John learned the agriculture business starting when he was very small, thanks to that his father worked in it and taught him to work at his side. Now that he has 20 years of experience working in this business he can have high quality products and this allows him to improve his income for his home, where he lives with his wife and 2 children, 9 and 13 years old. The biggest challenge that he has always faced is the winter that frequently harms his crops, and he doesn't have enough capital to recover them. It is because of this that now that he has the opportunity, he is looking for a loan to buy fertilizers, irrigation and seeds to get his crop ahead and maintain it during the harsh winter. His dream is to have a large farm and improve his income for his family and offer his wife and 2 children a better quality of life.
