A loan of $1,000 helped to buy agricultural supplies.


Jorge Alberto's story

Jorge, 51 years old, lives in his own house with his wife and his 18-year-old son. He has been a farmer for 15 years. His main crops are corn and beans. When his harvest is ready, he stores it in the granary shown in the photograph and then goes to sell it to staple grain merchants near where he lives. Jorge is asking for a loan that will allow him to be able to buy agricultural supplies such as seeds, fertilizers, manure, and pesticides, among other things that he needs for his crops, and to be able to obtain a better income to give his family greater economic stability.
