A loan of $500 helped to buy farm supplies.

Rafael's story

Rafael, 61, lives with his wife and son; he’s been working in agriculture for ten years growing corn and beans. He’s gained valuable experience that makes it possible for him to get the best crop yields. The field he plants on is located in a zone with high incidence of agriculture that’s quite near his house. He sells in all the community’s surrounding areas and has gained a large clientele that prefers him because everything he sells is top quality at accessible prices.

Rafael would like to make a new investment that will allow him to increase production which is why he’s requesting a loan to buy corn and bean seeds, insecticide, tools, etc. Rafael has good payment references and is sure that he’ll be able to repay the loan while at the same time hopes to provide economic security for his home.
