A loan of $800 helped to buy pesticides, insecticides, manure, and to pay laborers.


Jose Israel's story

José finds it necessary to get a new loan because he needs more working capital for the planting of basic grains. This investment will help agricultural supplies such as pesticides, insecticides, manure, and other crop protection products, as well as to pay for labor.

The previous loan was beneficial for him as it allowed him to cultivate one manzana [1.74 acres] of corn and he had a good harvest. He also generated household income. This is why his financial situation has improved and he has set up a tortilla business.
