A loan of $500 helped to buy agricultural supplies.


Rafael Antonio's story

Rafael, 52, lives in his own house. He has worked growing corn and beans for 32 years. This is how he earns his livelihood, an activity he does year to year and the only way he knows of earning a living.

He’s a very hardworking, honest, responsible man. Despite the conditions he lives in which are very humble he does not tire of working.

He’s decided to request a loan to buy the main agricultural supplies: manure, poison for pests, seeds, fertilizer, tools, etc. He hopes to get favorable results because he has no other source of income. He trusts in God that he’ll get an abundant harvest that will make it possible for him to continue bringing daily bread home.
