Santos's story

36-year-old Santos lives in his own house with his wife and five children. He is known in the area as a responsible and hard-working person. He makes a living from agriculture. He plants corn and beans. He also works as a day laborer at a mill near his home. With the profits he obtains from his sales and the pay from his work he manages to cover some of his household expenses. Santos is requesting a loan in order to be able to buy seeds, compost, fertilizer, pesticide, and other necessary things for his crops so that he will be able to have a better income to contribute to his household.
