A loan of $600 helped to buy soil amendments, seeds, fertilizer, etc.

Guillermo's story

Guillermo, 63, has made a living in agriculture for several years. His main crop is corn and sesame seeds. When his harvest is ready he stores it in the silos shown in the photograph, then sells it to agencies near his home that buy and sell basic grains.

With the profits from his sales he helps with his family's expenses. He lives in his own house with his wife and four children. When the farming season is over he works as a day laborer on a farm near his house.

He's requesting a loan to be able to buy agricultural inputs such as soil amendments, seeds, and fertilizer to help with planting his crops. This way he'll be able to have better profits and continue helping with the household expenses without any limitations.
