A loan of $1,000 helped to buy farming supplies.

Moises's story

Moisés raises corn and livestock. He lives with his wife and three children and has been farming for several years, a task he learned from his father. He currently has four plots of corn and uses part of the harvest for his family’s consumption and sells the rest.

He will use the money from this loan to pay field hands to prepare the land in order to subsequently plant on it. He will also buy herbicides, pest-controls, insecticides, and compost. This will help his to have a better harvest. Problems he may continue to have include lack of rain and drying out of his crops.
