A loan of $1,000 helped to buy natural fertilizer, seeds, and to pay for labor.


Mariano Antonio's story

Mariano is determined to continue working via loans. They present opportunities to be able to invest and to continue doing agricultural work. He is starting to plant corn for which he needs to buy fertilizer and seeds. He also needs to pay for the labor to prepare the land because this needs to be done in order to do his work. With the previous loan he and his wife managed to do good work. This is because he bought all of the materials needed to make bread. This has allowed him to have greater income. He feels that his family’s financial situation is improving, which is related to the previous loan.
