A loan of $300 helped to buy agricultural supplies and to rent land.


Carlos Alfredo's story

Carlos, 47, has been farming for 20 years. He plants corn and sorghum, and sales from the harvest cover his household expenses. He is responsible, honest, and hardworking. He lives with his wife, who sells vegetables in a nearby market. His four children are students. He has applied for a loan to buy supplies for the harvest and to pay the rent on the land he plants. His earnings do not cover these expenses, and this way he will have more income and greater financial stability.
