A loan of $850 helped to sow peanuts.


Sebastian's story

Sebastián is 27 years old and has a young baby, who is nine months old. He makes a living in agriculture, sowing various vegetables, including potatoes, yucca and corn on his plot of land in the Nuevo Surutu community. This loan is his first cycle with the institution. Sebastián is going to use the loan to sow peanuts, which also means he has to prepare the land. His reason for applying for this loan is so that he can have the resources for sowing his crops and to be able to survive. He will use the profits to improve his family's quality of life. Sebastián is a responsible and hard-working person. He is very grateful to the institution for the support that is being provided.
