A loan of $700 helped to buy supplies for growing corn and sorghum.


Mario Alberto's story

Mario lives with his wife and six children. There are two 4-year-old twins, and the other children are 11, 14, 16, and 18. They live in a highly agricultural area on the slopes of a hill.

He cultivates approximately 9 acres of corn and sorghum, and stores his harvest in the metal silo that appears in the photograph. He needs $700 so that he can prepare the land for the new planting season. He will purchase supplies such as fertilizer, herbicides and insecticides.
