A loan of $725 helped to purchase seed potatoes for planting.

Angel's story

Ángel is 35 and the father of three children aged 8, 5, and 3. He grows potatoes, yucca, corn, and a variety of other vegetables on his plot in the town of San Matías.

This is Ángel's first loan from the institution. He will use the loan funds to purchase seed potatoes for planting, which requires preparing the soil. This loan will also help Ángel meet household expenses and improve his family's quality of life in the face of challenges such as poor weather that has often wiped out plantings. Ángel is very dependable and hard-working; he is also solely responsible for all household expenses. Ángel is also grateful for the lender's support. After harvesting his crops, he sells them directly to consumers in community markets.
