A loan of $800 helped to pay for labor to pick his corn and to buy a machine to separate the kernels.


Edwin Gabriel's story

Edwin is requesting a loan to invest in growing staple grains by paying for labor to pick the corn and also by buying a machine to separate the kernels, which he will use to prepare his harvest to be eaten and sold. This loan will give him the financial resources he needs to carry out the final stage of work on his crop.

He believes that his harvests have increased through his use of these loans, as he has been buying the resources he needs. His earnings have also improved, which has allowed him to pay for food, clothing, and health costs for his son and wife, thereby improving their conditions.
