A loan of $2,675 helped to purchase farm supplies (fungicide, insecticide, larvicide, and fertilizer).


Luis Hernando's story

Hernando is 56 years old, has five children, and lives with his wife. He grew up in the countryside with his parents, who taught him about farming, and thanks to that knowledge, he now cultivates bean, coffee, bananas, and tomatoes. He has three greenhouses where he protects his crops so that he can have a good harvest with a good quality product. This allows him to sell his crops more easily at the market and generate income to support all of his family.

Hernando is an enterprising, hardworking, and dedicated man. In spite of the economic obstacles that he faced, he has always been able to move forward. He wants to count on the support of a second loan cycle to invest in farm supplies such as fungicides, insecticides, larvicides, and fertilizers.and refertilize his tomato crop so that he can have a better harvest of his products.

His dream is to have three more greenhouses since he has sufficient land to install them, and this will allow him to expand his crops, increase his sales, and improve his income. This will allow him to offer his wife and children a better well-being and quality of life.
