El Salvador / Farm Supplies

A loan of $325 helped to buy farm supplies and to pay labor costs.


Felipe's story

Felipe is requesting a new loan because this loan will be of great help to produce more abundant harvests. He will invest it in paying labor costs to prepare a ‘manzana’ [Central American unit of land measurement] of land to plant corn. It will also make it possible for him to buy manure, herbicide, fungicide and insecticide to do his planting.

He used his previous loan to buy basic grains and had good results because he increased his crop yield. His family circumstances have improved thanks to the income he was able to earn. The only thing is that his son suffered a fatal accident; even so however, he continues striving much to continue working with the institution.
