A loan of $600 helped to buy farming supplies.

Manuel De Jesus's story

Manuel is 65 years old, married, and has three children. He lives with his family in the town of Victoria, Yoro. He has been a farmer of basic grains (beans, corn, and rice) since he was very young. He raises these on land that he leases and sells his harvest at the local market. He is asking for this loan of 12,000 Lempiras, which he will use to maintain his corn and rice crop. He will buy fertilizer, compost, and pay for labor in order to have better production. His dream is to always have this source of income and for his children to learn how to work.
