A loan of $500 helped to buy fertilizer, insecticides and pesticides.


Luis Felipe's story

Luis is a farmer and a trucker. He lives with his wife and children. He is the only one in his family who works outside the home. He learned farming from a very early age, since his parents were also farmers. He has a truck, with which he transports goods. They plant their crops on rented land. They don't follow an established schedule; instead they count on their own experience. He is seeking a loan in order to purchase agricultural supplies, such as fertilizer, insecticides and pesticides. These will help him to obtain better results. His goal is to achieve success in his work, to help his children so that they are academically prepared, and in the future to buy his own land on which to raise his crops.
