A loan of $1,200 helped to buy agricultural supplies and to pay labor costs to prepare the soil.


Jose Fernando's story

José is a person of his home. He lives with his life companion and their son; he gets no help from abroad. He works growing basic grains like corn and sorghum and also vegetables like manioc and also raises livestock. He learned this occupation as a helper and subsequently decided to start growing his own crops; he’s been doing so for 16 years.

The loan he needs will make it possible for him to buy agricultural supplies like manure, herbicide, pesticide, fungicide, insecticide and seeds; he will also pay labor costs and prepare the soil. This investment will help him have everything needed to plant his crops. His dream is to continue working his crops, to improve his house and to give his family improved quality of life.
