A loan of $850 helped purchase onion seed and organic fertilizer for farming.

Pedro Rolando's story

Pedro is a hardworking, 32 year old man who lives together with his four children (one son and three daughters) in Monte Mercedes, near the town of Sacsiguán, in the department of Sololá. He is a hardworking person striving to support his family and improving their living conditions. He works farming onions right near his home.

Many years ago he learned to work in the fields as a farmer; it was the first work that his father taught him. This activity generates sufficient income and earnings for him to cover the household expenses of his family. He hopes to increase his crop, and for this reason he is requesting a loan of Q 6,500.00 to purchase onion seed and organic fertilizer to harvest and sell in the local market.

His goal is to improve his earnings and build his home in order to improve the living conditions of his family.
