A loan of $875 helped to buy fertilizers and fungicides for his bean crops.

Cupertino's story

Fifty-four-year-old Cupertino is a farmer who has been working in agriculture for 20 years. He and his brother-in-law made the decision to grow beans on a small plot they cleared so they could make money for their two families.

Cupertino wants to be able to get his nine children ahead and offer them a decent life, which is why he is looking for a loan that he will use to buy fertilizers and fungicides.

His greatest dream is to have his own land and to build a home for his family. One of the greatest challenges to his business has been the weather, as strong rains and the heat of summer incur great losses in his crops.
