Vicente De Jesus's story

Vicente, 38, has made a living in agriculture for 13 years. His main crop is cucumber. He lives with his life partner and their three children, ages 7, 12, and 16, who currently attend school. He's a hardworking and responsible man with regard to the needs of his household.

The photograph shows the land where he's beginning to plant his cucumbers. He manages to pay his household expenses with the sales from his harvest.

Vicente's requesting a loan that will help him buy agricultural supplies such as seed, soil amendments, herbicide, and fungicide to be able to continue growing his seeds and to give his family a better quality of life.
