Melvin Ricardo's story

Melvin, 38, is a very responsible, hard-working man who lives in his own house with his family. He is a crop farmer and grows mainly corn and beans which he stores in the graneries shown in the photograph. He then sells the grain to different markets near his place of residence.

Melvin wants to increase his sales and is requesting a loan to buy seeds and fertilizer. He is counting on this support since he has no other means of income. This will allow him to put food on the table for his family and cover their needs without limitation.
