A loan of $2,025 helped to buy bean and corn seeds and farm supplies.


Rafael's story

Rafael is a farmer in the southern part of Costa Rica. He lives with his wife and children. He has been working in agriculture and livestock for several years.

He has applied for a loan of one million Costa Rican colones to buy corn and bean seeds. He also needs to buy insecticides, fungicides, pesticides, and granular fertilizer to maintain his harvest and obtain products of good quality, since his income depends on this activity. Rafael is grateful for the financial opportunity which he has been offered.
