A loan of $200 helped to pay the lease on the land.


Jose Astul's story

José has two children, ages 6 and 3. He lives with his wife and he is a farmer. He has been harvesting corn and beans for 30 years, and he learned how from his parents. He works every day, or depending on the season, his schedule is from 6:00 am to 3:00 pm. He needs to rent the land where he will plant his crop, therefore he is seeking a loan which will allow him to pay the lease. It will let him insure his work because the harvest is what lets him earn income. José's aspiration is to be able to support his children's education, cover the important expenses in his home, and also to improve their housing.
