A loan of $1,600 helped to buy fruit and vegetables.

Mario's story

Mario is 60 years old. He is a farmer from the area of Sonsón. He has been working in agriculture since childhood. Currently he grows beans, tamarillos, and yellow potatoes. Through this activity he guaranteed his children access to education and a better quality of life.

Five years ago he decided to combine farming and selling products, so he rented a warehouse in his community to market them. With the purpose of expanding his sales, he is requesting a loan in order to buy fruits and vegetables using the loan for the vegetable service.

Mario is a man full of dreams, struggling for them until they become a reality. The most important thing is to buy the parcel of land he cultivates as the rent is expensive and reduces his profit.
