Sacarias's story

Sacarias is 40 years old. He is married an lives with his family. They are of low income. Sacarias works exclusively in agriculture and in his free time works as a laborer in different land parcels in his community to support his family. In the last harvest, he had problems with drought, causing poor production and product quality. That made his family income fail, as they support themselves with farm production. Each year they grow mainly onions, potatoes and beans. This year, Sacarias wants to start out on the right foot and have good production with his crops. That is why he is asking for the loan to buy organic and chemical fertilizer. This way, he can improve onion and potato production. Sacarias works on small land parcels with his wife. He also has a clear idea that with this loan, he will improve his crops and also his family's quality of life.
