A loan of $900 helped to buy seeds, insecticide, herbicide, etc.

Rufino Armando's story

Rufino, 58, lives with his life’s companion and their six children in his own house. He works growing corn and beans and has been working in agriculture for several years so he’s acquired much experience that allows him to obtain the best crops. When they are ready to be harvested he stores them in silos like the one shown in the photo to then go out selling them around the community. He already has many customers that prefer him for the quality, good prices and above all good service.

He needs to invest which is why he’s asking for a loan that will make it possible for him to buy seeds, insecticide, herbicide, etc. His acquaintances give Rufino good payment references and he’s very responsible; he’s sure that he will be able to repay the loan in the established time frame while at the same time trusts that he will provide economic security at home.
