A loan of $800 helped to buy agricultural supplies such as fertilizer and seeds.

Juan Obdulio's story

Juan is 39 years old, very friendly and hardworking, and he lives with his wife and 15 year old son. He works very hard on his own piece of land and he is currently cultivating corn. With the earnings that he obtains from this work he has been able to support his family. Juan is asking for a loan in order to have the money necessary to invest in the purchase of agricultural supplies such as pesticides and fertilizer (he can be seen with his fertilizing tools in the photo). This will allow him to have better harvests, and by increasing his sales will improve his earnings and his ability to provide his family with a better life.
