A loan of $1,500 helped plant watermelon.


Eusebio's story

Eusebio is 30 and has three children, ages 2, 6, and 8. He is a farmer, planting watermelon and fruit trees on his plot of land located in the Papa el Coscal locality. This is his first loan sequence within the intuition. Eusebio will use the loan to plant watermelon and maintain his citrus trees for the following harvest. One challenge Eusebio faces in his work is to improve his quality of life. He will use the earnings to increase his production. Eusebio sells his goods in the market in his locality, directly from the producer to the consumer. He is happy and grateful for the opportunity that the loan provides him since this has been his only work for many years, and it allows him to support himself and his family.
