A loan of $1,000 helped buy farming supplies such as manure, fertilizer, seeds, etc.

Mario Alberto's story

Mario is 51 years old and has been working in farming for 15 years. His main crops are chiles, cucumbers, and tomatoes. He sells his crops to shopkeepers that are near where he lives. With the profits that he obtains from his sales, he helps with the household expenses. He lives with his wife and their son.

Mario is asking for this loan to be able to buy farming supplies that will help him to plant his crops, including manure and fertilizer. In addition, he wishes to improve his land (which is shown in the picture). In this way, he will be able to make better profits and continue helping with the household expenses.
