A loan of $400 helped to buy farming inputs such as seeds and compost.

Rigoberto De Jesús's story

Rigoberto has been farming in the village of el Llano, Santa Elena, Colombia for the past 12 years. He learned how to farm from his family and currently grows greenhouse strawberries and tomatoes. He works every day, from 5.00am to 5.00pm. Thanks to his business, his family enjoy better living conditions.

With the aim of achieving a better harvest and increasing his income, Rigoberto is requesting a loan to invest in buying farming inputs such as seeds and compost. This will allow him to improve his household's quality of life.
