A loan of $500 helped to buy five sacks of compost and seeds for corn and pay for labor.

Oscar Ernesto's story

Oscar works in agriculture. He is 35 years old. He is married and has two children, ages 4 and 10. He lives in his own house and raises basic foods such as corn and beans to maintain his household. He works from Monday to Saturday from 6:00 am to 7:00 pm. He learned this work when he was young and has already been working on his own for 10 years.

The loan will allow him to buy five bags of compost and seeds for corn and pay for labor to produce his crop. This will help him to invest and expand his productivity and increase his earnings.

His dream is to pay for the education of his children and also offer his family a better quality of life.
