A loan of $300 helped to buy agricultural inputs, fertilizer, seed, soil amendments, etc.

Ely Antonio's story

Ely, 33, has made a living in agriculture for five years. He grows beans and corn. When his harvests are ready he stores them in the silo seen in the photograph. With the sales he makes he manages to pay the household expenses.

He's a responsible, honest, and hardworking man. He lives with his family in his own house.

He's requesting a loan to be able to buy agricultural inputs such as seed, fertilizer, pesticide, soil amendments, and other things he needs for his harvest, because what he earns isn't enough to cover those expenses. This way he'll have better income and greater economic stability.
