A loan of $1,025 helped to buy seeds to plant potato.


Saul's story

Saúl is 27. He works in agriculture and plants a variety of vegetables such as potato and yucca on his land located in the community of Santo Corazon. This is his first loan with the institution. Saúl will use it for the purchase of potato seeds and items he needs to prepare the land. He needs this loan in order to have the resources for sowing and to subsist. He confronts challenges such as the inclement climate which often ruins the seedlings. He will use the profit from this loan in order to improve his and his family's quality of life. He is responsible for all of the household costs. He is a responsible and hard-working person, and is grateful to the institution for this support, since this job is his only source of income. Once he harvests his products he sells them in the community market, directly to the consumer.
