A loan of $900 helped to buy fertiliser, weed killer, manure etc.

Angel's story

Angel, who is 42, lives in his own home with his family group. He has been growing corn for 12 years and this has given him the experience needed to tend his crops. When his crops are ripe, he stores them in the barns shown in the photo until he goes to sell them at various nearby markets. The profits he makes from his sales enable him to cover the household expenses. Angel is applying for a loan to buy the supplies he needs (fertiliser, weed killer and manure, among other things) which will enable him to have good harvests and make higher profits so that he can provide better financial stability for his family.
