A loan of $225 helped to buy four sacks of manure.


Marcos Humberto's story

Marcos works growing basic grains. He’s 45-years-old and lives in his sister’s house. He’s been working for 10 years; he learned this occupation from his father.

He’s currently planting corn and is asking for a loan that will help him buy four sacks of manure that will be used to strengthen the crops. His goal is to improve his living conditions by means of his crops and thus be able to cover his expenses.
