A loan of $400 helped to buy agricultural supplies.

Francisco Javier's story

Francisco, 48, works in agriculture and lives in a small community located in the municipality of Sonsón, Colombia. He lives with his wife and four children, two of them underage. Francisco works every day from 5 am to 4 pm, in a farm that belongs to the family. He is currently growing papa criolla [a small, yellow type of potato] and tamarillo, which have become a source of income and a way to support the family. Francisco loves his work, something that motivates him to work harder and harder every day. He thanks God for his immense goodness and the gift of having a wonderful family.

Francisco is requesting a loan to buy the supplies needed to expand his plantations and fertilize the ones he already has. He hopes to increase his income and satisfy his family’s basic needs. One of his major challenges is the changing weather, which affects his crops and causes economic losses.
