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

Jose Patricio's story

Jose, 46 years old, has been a farmer for 25 years. He grows corn and sorghum. When he has brought in his crop, he stores it in the granaries shown in the photograph and then sells it to staple grain agencies. He covers some of his household's expenses with the earnings that he receives. He lives in his own house with his wife and his two children, aged 17 and 22 years. Jose is asking for a loan that will allow him to buy everything necessary to continue with his crop, such as seeds, pesticides, fertilizers, and manure, among others, since it is his only source of work. In this way he will be able to obtain a better income from his sales and give his family everything they need with no limitations.
