A loan of $400 helped to purchase agricultural supplies (manure, seeds, etc.).

Rene Humberto's story

Thirty-six year-old Rene lives with his wife and their 3 children in their own house.

He has earned a living working in agriculture for the past 8 years. He plants the main basic grains: beans and corn. With the sale of his harvests he manages to cover household expenses. He is a responsible, honest and hard-working man.

He is asking for a loan to be able to buy supplies for his harvest and to pay the rent on the parcel of land where he plants his crops shown in the photograph. The money he earns is not enough to cover these costs. This way he will have a better income and will be more economically stable.
