A loan of $400 helped to buy manure, herbicides, pesticides, insecticides, and other items.


Jose Ismael's story

José plants basic staples and raises hogs. He lives with his family - a wife and four children, who are in school. He inherited his work from his father, and works from 5:00 am to 4:00 pm.
He needs this loan to purchase agricultural supplies such as manure, herbicides, pesticides, and insecticides. This investment will help him to improve his yield. The risks in this line of work include drastic changes that affect production, and plagues.
His dream is to keep working a lot in order to obtain a good harvest and improve his income, thus providing his family with a better quality of life.
