Elmer Balmore's story

Elmer lives with his common-law wife and their children in a relative's home. He has been growing corn and beans for several years, so he has the necessary experience to prosper in his business. At harvest time he stores the crops in the graineries shown in the photograph. He later sells them to the many clients he has in the area where he lives and uses the profits he earns to provide for his family.

He is requesting a loan to buy better quality corn and bean seeds, as well as fertilizer and pesticides. This is so he can give his family a life with better opportunities.
