A loan of $800 helped to buy manure, pesticide, herbicide, and plant fertilizers.


Salvador's story

Salvador, 43, lives with his wife and their two children in their own house. He has made a living in agriculture for several years.

His main crops are corn and sorghum. When his harvest is ready, he stores it in the silos which are shown in the photo. Later, he goes out to sell the crops to merchants of staple grains, close to where he lives. With these sales and with the help of his wife, they manage to cover the home expenses.

He has applied for a loan which will allow him to buy manure, pesticide, herbicide, and plant fertilizers. He will be able to continue with his harvests in order to achieve better earnings and a better life for his family.
