A loan of $525 helped to buy compost, weed killer, and plant fertilizer.

Jose Angel's story

José is 35 years old. He lives with his family. He has two children ages 18 and 20. José makes a living growing corn to provide for his family. He learned to grow corn when he was a young boy from his parents. He has been working on his own for the last ten years. José works from Monday to Saturday from 6 a.m. to 12 p.m. Currently, it is time for another round of planting.

José is requesting this loan in order to buy compost, weed killer, and plant fertilizer to begin his work. This investment will help him yield a better production. Some of the risks for his crops are too much rain or drought because of the winter season. José's dream is to improve his financial situation and provide his children with a good education so that they will have a better future.
