A loan of $500 helped to purchase seed, compost, and work for the land.


Jose Gregorio's story

José works in agriculture and is 52 years old. He lives together with his wife who is 38 years old. They have three children who are enrolled in school and range in age from 12 to 18 years. As a farmer he grows corn, planting cleared fields in the milpas style. He has been working in this way all of his life and does it every day. With this loan he will purchase seed, compost, and pay for the tilling of the field. This investment will allow him to increase his inventory and cultivate a plot of land. His objective is to strengthen his business and provide a better quality of life for himself and his family.
