A loan of $450 helped to buy seeds, fertilizers, and insecticides, etc.

Anastacio Francisco's story

Anastacio, age 53, has been farming for 20 years. This has given him a lot of experience in this business activity. He grows corn and sorghum. When his harvest is ready, he sells it to the basic grains merchants that are close to where he lives. With the income he gets, he manages to pay some of the household expenses.

Anastacio is requesting a loan to be able to buy manure, fertilizer, seeds, herbicides, tools, and everything that is needed for his harvest. He will also use the loan to improve the land where he sows. This way he will get better harvests in order to give his family a better life without any limitations.
