Savino's story

Sabino, 32, is single living with his family and son. His son’s mother abandoned them leaving him to care for their son; they are of scarce economic resources.

Sabino works exclusively in agriculture and in his free time works as a day laborer in different parcels in his community in order to support his family. This year due to the heavy rainfall the river overran its banks flooding part of his land where he was growing broad beans completely destroying it and leaving no possibility of salvaging any part of his harvest. This caused his income to drop considerably and he was unable to cover costs to support his family and costs incurred in his yearly agricultural production mainly of broad beans and peanuts.

Now, Sabino is requesting the loan to buy seeds and manure to once again retake the agricultural production path. He has a clear idea that with this loan he’ll be able to improve his family’s living conditions.
