El Salvador
El Salvador / Farm Supplies

A loan of $500 helped to buy fertilizer, herbicide, pest-control substances, insecticide, and seeds to carry out his farming.


Elias's story

Elías makes a living in agriculture. He began this work because of the necessity to earn income in order to support his family and to help with home expenses and with any other need. He does this work of growing basic grains from 5:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.

Elías is married and has three children, ages 8, 12, and 16. He does not receive help from family living abroad.

The loan that he requires will help him to buy fertilizer, herbicide, pest-control substances, insecticide, and seeds to carry out his farming. This will allow him to have a better harvest, thereby increasing his productivity and profits.

His goal is to improve his family's quality of life.
