A loan of $550 helped to buy manure, pesticides, seeds, fertilizers, and tools, etc.

German Francisco's story

Germán is 46 years old and grows corn and beans. This is how he makes a living and is able to take home the daily bread. He carries out the sowing and harvesting every year and it is the only way he is able to make a living. He is a very hard-working, honorable, and responsible man. Despite the conditions he lives in, which are very humble, he never gets tired of working and tries to give his family the best. Germán has decided to approach the institution to request this loan because the sowing season is coming and he wants to be prepared by having the essential farming supplies, such as manure, pesticides, seeds, fertilizers, and tools, etc. He hopes to get positive results since he does not have any other form of income. He trusts in God that his crops will produce an abundant harvest which will allow him to continue to put food on the table.
