A loan of $1,025 helped purchase organic fertilizer.

Maximo's story

Máximo lives in Colomi. He is 25 years old. He is single and economically independent. He is a farmer and works in five plots inherited from his parents. He grows potatoes, ulluco and oca (root vegetables). He rotates the crops and has experience in the fields. In addition, he has three cows for fattening and two dairy cows. Máximo needs to loan to purchase organic fertilizer in order to take advantage of this time because the prices are low and it’s delivered to the same place. For this reason, he came to our office to request a loan. The savings he had were invested in farming supplies. Máximo felt happy about having the opportunity to receive a loan, in addition to having the support from the institution. With the purchase of the organic fertilizer, the planting of potatoes and other products are secured for food security and to generate more income in the future.
