A loan of $500 helped to purchase compost, fertilizers, seed, etc...


Rigoberto's story

Rigoberto, 53 years old, lives with his wife and their three children in their own home. He has worked in agriculture for many years and it is his main source of income. He grows corn and beans, and with the earnings from his harvest he is able to cover some of his household expenses.

He wants to purchase the necessary supplies for his crops such as compost, fertilizers, seeds, etc... However, since he does not have the necessary funds for this investment, he has decided to request a loan because it is the only way for him to continue his farming. Like all other farmers, he places his trust in agriculture as he possesses no other source of income, and he hopes to overcome and do the best he can with his crops. He hopes to have an abundant harvest which will allow him to continue to put food on the table and repay his loan.
