A loan of $825 helped to buy supplies and fertiliser.

Hernándo Emilio's story

Hernando is 58 years old. He is married with 4 children. He is a farmer, and since his youth he has worked growing potatoes and grain. This activity is the main livelihood for himself and his family. The changing climate in the region has caused Hernando considerable losses to his crops. For this reason he is applying for a loan in order to buy supplies and fertiliser, with which he will sow on his plot again. Due the critical situation in which he finds himself Hernando has been forced to look for a job, but at his age, it has been difficult. He hopes that with this loan he will be able to return to his great passion which is agriculture.
