A loan of $300 helped to buy manure, seeds, fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides, etc., and make land improvements..


Jose Rolando's story

Jose is 38 years old and lives in his own home with his wife and four children. He works in agriculture and for several years has grown corn and sorghum. He sells his products to bulk grain agencies located near his home. With his earnings, he is able to cover some of his household expenses.

Jose is asking for a loan in order to be able to buy the supplies necessary for his crops: manure, seeds, fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides, etc. He also wants to make improvements on the land he plans to farm, shown in the photograph, and to give his family greater financial stability.
