A loan of $1,000 helped to buy fertilizers, herbicides, seeds, etc.


Elias's story

Elías is 59 years old and lives in his own home with his life partner. He works in farming corn, beans and rice and has done this for 30 years. This has given him the experience necessary to cultivate healthy plants. He sells his harvests in the farmers' markets near his home, and with his earnings he takes care of home expenses.

Elías requests a loan to be able to buy necessary inputs like fertilizers, herbicides and seeds, among other things, to have good harvests and in this way be able to obtain higher earnings to give his family more economic stability.
