A loan of $1,500 helped to plant sorghum.


Luis's story

Luis is 34 years old. He lives with his partner, with whom he has three children who are 1, 9, and 15 years old and who are all in school. Luis has been working in farming and livestock for over 11 years. They live in the community of Cañaveral, 40km from El Torno, where their plot of land is and where they grown watermelons, citrus, and yucca. The loan they have requested is to plant sorghum and for the cost of preparing the land. They sell the sorghum as feed for livestock. They sell everything they grow directly from grower to consumer at the local market. He is happy with the institution and thankful for the help he has received.
