A loan of $600 helped to buy agricultural supplies to improve his land.

Tomas's story

Tomás, 55, has worked in agriculture for many years; it’s his main source of income. He grows corn and sesame and uses profits earned from his harvests to cover some of his household expenses. He wants to buy the supplies he needs for his crops like manure, fertilizer and seeds and to improve the land where he does his planting and that’s shown in the photo.

However, noting that he does not have the economic resources needed for said investment he’s decided to request a loan since only in this way will he be able to continue with his farming project. Like all other farmers, he places his trust in agriculture because they have no other source of income and he wants to improve doing the best he can for his crops. He hopes to obtain an abundant harvest that will make it possible for him to continue providing daily bread for his home and to repay this loan.
