A loan of $625 helped to purchase corn seed, fertilizer, fungicide and herbicides.

Santos's story

Santos is a farmer near the zone of the Pacific in the North of the country. He has been working in agriculture for many years, since this is the principle activity in the zone. He sells his products at local coops, and he supports his family with his income. His family is composed of five members. Santos's goal is to grow economically so that his children can go to the university and have a better future. For that reason he is asking for a loan of 300,000 colones (¢300.000 - Costa Rican currency). With this money he will extend his crop land, he will buy corn seed, and he'll buy fertilizers and herbicides in order to obtain new income upon selling his harvest.
