A loan of $1,000 helped to buy compost, seeds, fertilizers, and other farming supplies.


Mario Edgardo's story

Don Mario has been a farmer for 10 years, which has given him the ability and the necessary knowledge to manage his crops. His main crops are corn and sorghum, which are sold to dry goods companies located near his home. With the profit he earns from his sales, Mario is able to help with his family’s expenses. He lives with his wife and two children.

Mario is requesting a loan so that he can buy farming supplies that will help him with planting his crops. These items include compost, seeds, fertilizers, and other supplies. As a result, he will be able to generate more income and continue helping with the household expenses without any limitations.
