A loan of $550 helped to buy a scythe.


Sergio Alberto's story

Sergio makes a living as a gardener, having learned his trade over 14 years ago. Sergio had worked all his life as an employer in various local farms.

However, a year ago, Sergio was determined to become independent and offer gardening services on his own. He tells us that, for now, he has had only good results and so Sergio wants to continue with this work. To do this, he is applying for a loan in order to buy a scythe. This will allow him to improve the quality of service he offers and to increase his income.

Sergio's biggest desire is to spend good times with his three children and to guarantee them a quality education.
