A loan of $500 helped to buy seeds and manure and to rent the land.


Jose Fernando's story

José has decided on a new loan because of the need to invest more in his agricultural business. He is ready to plant again, and to do so he needs to buy seeds and manure, rent the land, and clear the area where he plants. This loan will make it possible to do his work in the field.

He managed to have a positive effect with the previous loan. It helped him produce a ‘manzana’ [a land measurement unit equivalent to 7000 square meters] of corn. He got a good harvest, which he was able to store to feed his family. He also sold part of the harvest, and his family situation is stable.
