Benito's story

Benito, 65, lives in his own house with his family. He has made a living for 10 years growing basic grains such as corn and millet. He also grows jocote [a fruit that's also known as mombin].

He's a very responsible and honest man who's dedicated to his job. He sells his crops to the grain merchants near his home. He's able to cover some of his household expenses with his profits.

Benito wants to buy fertilizer, seed, soil amendments, and other things to have a better harvest. This is why he's requesting a loan that will allow him to buy those supplies and have better income and greater economic stability.
