A loan of $250 helped to make investments to support his corn crops.


Hector Ovidio's story

Hector is a friendly and hardworking person. He grows crops in the area where he lives. With his income he supports his family (his 71-year-old father and 30-year-old brother). At his own age of 35, he has 10 years of experience cultivating approximately two acres of corn. He did not have the opportunity to go to college. Thus, he learned the business of farming from his father, who has been a farmer his whole life.

He is seeking a loan of $250 in order to buy the supplies he needs in order to prepare the land (herbicides) and to later take care of the crops (fertilizers and insecticides).
