A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase seedcorn and everything else necessary to cultivate the land.

Serafin's story

Mr. Serafin is 30 years old, married, and his wife is awaiting a baby that will be their first child. He works in agriculture, planting a variety of vegetables such as potatoes, yuca, and corn in his plot, which is located in the Rio Seco (Dry River) region. This loan is his first with this organization. Mr. Serafin is going to use this loan for the purchase of seedcorn and all that is required to cultivate the land. His reason for asking for this loan is to obtain resources for planting and the ability to subsist. Mr. Serafin faces many challenges in his business, such as the changes in the weather which, on many occasions, ruin his sown fields. He will use this loan to increase the quality of life of his clients and his own family, since he already manages all of the expenses of his home. He is a very responsible and hard-working person who is very thankful for the loan. In the photo, Mr. Serfain is with his spouse.
