A loan of $350 helped to purchase seeds, fertilizer, herbicide, compost, etc.

Jorge Mario's story

42-year-old Jorge lives with his wife and his three children in a house that he owns. He has worked in farming for the past 20 years. His main crops are corn and beans. Once he's done harvesting, he stores the produce in the containers and sacks that are shown in the photo. Then he goes out and sells it at places that buy and sell essential grains. The profits he makes from his sales allow him to afford some of the expenses in his household. Jorge requests a loan in order to purchase seeds, fertilizer, herbicide, compost, etc., so that he can continue to sow and provide the daily bread for his family.
