A loan of $700 helped buy farming supplies (manure and insecticide).

Gustavo De Jesús's story

Gustavo is 53 years old and lives in Rionegro, Columbia with his wife and three young children. He has worked in farming since he was young and learned it because it has been done in his family for a long time. He works growing blackberries, which he sells in his town market. This has become his sole source of income and it has been adversely affected by winters that have caused him to suffer financial loss.

With the goal of improving his financial stability, he is asking for a loan to buy farming supplies (manure and insecticide). He dreams of securing a decent quality of life for his family and a good education for his children.
