A loan of $725 helped to buy seed to grow potatoes.


Isauro's story

Isauro, 33, grows a variety of vegetables, including potatoes, yuca, and corn, on his land in the town of Paso el Chivo. This will be his first loan cycle with the institution. Isauro will use the loan to buy potato seed and supplies needed to prepare the land. He is requesting the loan so that he has funding for planting.

Isauro faces challenges such as inclement weather that many times destroys the plantings. He will use the income to improve his and his family's standard of living, as he is responsible for all the household expenses. He is responsible, hardworking, and grateful for the institution's support. Once the crop is harvested, he will sell the product directly to customers at the local market.
