A loan of $550 helped a member to purchase fertilizers and supplies for his business.

G.s El Tular Group's story

Rafael, 57 years old, lives with his wife and his two adult children in his home. He has worked for 25 years in the business of selling corn, firewood and fertilizers by the pound and by the quintal. Rafael makes a living in agriculture and is a serious, hardworking man who is eager to get ahead. The solidarity group El Tular has decided that he will be the leader since he is the person that has charisma with others.

Rafael is requesting the loan for the purchase of fertilizers and supplies for agriculture and just like his colleagues in the group he is happy to work with Prisma. Mary has a convenience store which she wants to stock a little bit. Luwin has a business selling firewood.

Rafael’s dream is to have a good harvest this year and have a better house.
