A loan of $1,175 helped to buy seeds and fertilizers.


Concepción's story

Concepción, aged 55, is married and has three dependent children. His wife is named Liboria, and is 57 years of age. They work together in agricultural production, leading the management of the family. Because of the hail that fell in this rainy season in the area, Concepción has lost most of his crops of potatoes and beans, which he was planning to sell. These changes in climate greatly affect economic stability. Suffering this economic imbalance directly affects his children and his whole family, in the acquisition of the required sums for the start of school as well as the whole family’s basic food needs.

Concepción is very well-known and respected in the community, due to his dedication to his work and to his family. He is applying for this loan with the aim of buying more seeds and fertilizers in order to sow the seeds again and return to the path to prosperity.
