A loan of $1,500 helped to buy watermelon seeds and to harvest citrus.


Basilio's story

Basilio’s 37-years-old and has three children who are 8, 5 and 3 years of age. He’s a farmer who grows watermelons and fruit on his parcel located in Pampa el Coscal. This loan is his third sequence in the institution and Basilio will use this loan to buy seeds for growing watermelon and for his subsequent crop of citrus. The business challenge Basilio faces is to improve his quality of life and he will use profits to increase production. Basilio sells his products in the local market directly from producer to consumer. He feels happy and grateful for the opportunity being provided because this is the only activity that for several years has made it possible for him to support himself and his family.
