A loan of $1,450 helped to buy seeds and fertilizers.

Ananias's story

Ananias, 47 years of age, has three dependent children. His wife supports him in agricultural production, heading up the management of the family.

In the place where he lives, because of the low temperatures they get in the region, they can only grow potatoes, quinoa and wheat.

In recent days, because of the changes in weather, his community got a strong hailstorm that destroyed a big part of his potato crop, affecting his income. This hailstorm not only caused damage to his crop, but also had a great impact on his humble house where they live. They have had to sleep at their neighbor's house until they can repair their home.

Ananias is applying for the loan to buy seeds and fertilizers to sow his lands again, since it is the only source of income he has. This loan will help Ananias and his whole family a lot, since in spite of all this inclement weather that he has suffered, he wants to get his family ahead.
