A loan of $400 helped to buy fertilizer, manure, seeds, etc.


Juan Obilio's story

Juan lives in his own house with his wife and two children and works as a farmer. For several years he has been planting beans and corn and by selling his harvest he has been able to cover his living costs. He is a responsible, honest and hard-working man. Juan is seeking a loan in order to be able to buy supplies for his crops such as fertilizer, manure, and seeds, as shown in the photograph, since he cannot afford these expenses with what he earns. In this way he will have a better income and better economic stability for his family.
