A loan of $500 helped to buy fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, and to pay for the labor to finish planting 7,000 square meters of yucca and another 7,000 square meters of corn, which he is cultivating on land that he rents.


Jorge Alberto's story

Jorge is fifty-three years old, and makes a living in agriculture, specifically in growing corn, yucca, and beans. He has carried out this work since he was fifteen years old. He also maintains dairy cattle; this generates economic profits for him. He lives with his wife and their three children. His kids study and work, and he has two sons and one daughter. The lands that he works are located 15 meters away, and his work schedule is from 6AM-11:30AM. He dedicates the rest of the day to his livestock. Before leaving for work in the morning, he milks the cows at 3AM so that he can sell the milk.

The loan he requests will be used to buy fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, and to pay for the labor to finish planting 7,000 square meters of yucca and another 7,000 square meters of corn, which he is cultivating on land that he rents.

His dream is to buy more livestock, improve his living conditions, enjoy his grandchildren, and for his children to become professionals.
