A loan of $400 helped to buy compost, insecticides, fungicides, herbicides, pesticides, as well as concentrated pig feed.


Jose Rumaldo's story

José lives with his wife and two children, ages 14 and 15. He also has a grandchild. José cultivates basic grain crops and also raises pigs and poultry. He learned this trade from his parents at a very young age. Today his children help him carry out his work. This is advantageous during harvest time since his family helps him with gathering and selling the crops.


The loan he is requesting will be used to buy compost, insecticides, fungicides, herbicides, pesticides, as well as concentrated feed for his pigs. This will help him obtain a better harvest from his crops. One of the risks that he must deal with would be the lack of rain during the winter.


His dream is to provide a better quality of life for his family, so he aspires to earn more income in the future.
