El Salvador / Farm Supplies

A loan of $250 helped to buy manure, herbicides, insecticides, pesticides and chemicals for preventing plagues, and more.


Francisco's story

Francisco makes a living growing basic grains. He has a partner and a five-year-old son. He has the means to pay back this loan. Francisco's agricultural work is a source of income. He sows basic grains and, after the harvesting season, goes out to sell them.

This loan will allow Francisco to buy supplies, such as manure, herbicides, insecticides, pesticides and chemicals for preventing plagues. The investment will improve the quality of Francisco's products and he will thus make a higher profit and improve his quality of life.

Francisco's dream is for his children to prosper and to become professionals.
