A loan of $225 helped to buy fertilizer, pesticides, seeds, manure, etc.

Jorge Alberto's story

Jorge, age 58, lives with his wife and three children in his own home. He has cultivated corn for several years, and when the harvest is over he sells hammocks in the area. This is how he makes a living and provides his family with their daily bread. He cultivates year in, year out, and this is the only way he knows to make a living. He is a very hard-working, honest, and responsible man. Despite the humble conditions in which he lives, he never gets tired of working to give his family the best. He has decided to request a loan to buy basic agricultural supplies: manure, pesticides, seeds, fertilizer, etc. He hopes to have good results because he does not have another source of income. He trusts God that he will obtain an abundant harvest which will allow him to provide his family's daily bread.
