A loan of $850 helped to purchase fertilizer and seed, and pay farmhands.

Fidel Antonio's story

Fidel decided to get a new loan so he can stop working on the land sowing corn and squash. He will invest in fertlizer and seed, and he will pay farmhands to work during the sowing season. This will help Fidel's sowing season to go well.

The previous loan had a positive effect. He was able to harvest the corn and squash in order to feed his family, and he was also able to sell some of the harvest, but he says that some of the crops sown were lost due to the lack of water during winter.
