A loan of $500 helped to buy farm supplies such as seeds, fertilizer, and pesticides.

Roberto's story

Roberto has been working in agriculture for several years, which has given him the necessary ability and knowledge to attend to his crops. His main crops are corn and sorghum.

When his harvest is ready, he stores it in the silos shown in the photograph. He then goes out and sells them to basic grains agencies near his home. With the earnings from his sales, he helps with his family's expenses. He lives with his wife and his three children.

Roberto is applying for a loan to buy farm supplies to help with sowing crops, such as manure, seeds, and fertilizer. He will then be able to earn a better income and continue helping with the household expenses with no limitations.
