A loan of $1,200 helped to buy fertilizer, seeds and pay for labor to prepare the land.


Silvio Jose's story

Silvio is applying for a new loan, so that he can invest in his business growing corn, buying the necessary materials so that production will be more abundant and healthy. For example, he will buy fertilizer, seeds, and also pay for the labor needed to prepare the land. With this, he will be in a position to start his work.

He considers that the previous loan has allowed him to increase his inventory of supplies, enabling him to have a good harvest that he has been able to sell at a very good price, obtaining a profit margin that enables him to help his family. Nowadays he is doing his farming on a greater number of manzanas (unit of land measurement), so he hopes to have more output.
