A loan of $300 helped to buy fertilizers, manure, seeds etc.

Juan Alfonso's story

63-year-old Juan has been a farmer for 48 years, which has given him the capacity and knowledge necessary to take care of his crops. His principal crops are corn and beans. When his harvest is ready, he stores it in the silos shown in the photograph in order to later go out and sell them to the staple grain agencies that are near where he lives. With the profits from his sales, he helps with the family expenses. He lives with his wife in their own home. Juan is requesting the loan in order to be able to buy agricultural inputs that will help him grow his crops such as manure, seeds and fertilizers. In this way, he will be able to have greater income and to continue helping with the household expenses without any limitation.
