A loan of $800 helped to buy agricultural supplies at wholesale (manure, fertilizer, fungicides).

Santander David's story

David, 52 years old, has five children and lives with his partner. He has spent his whole life in the countryside, where he learned farmwork, and today he grows a variety of crops on his small plot of land. He earns an income to support his family from harvesting and selling his crops in the market of the town where he lives. He is currently requesting this loan to buy agricultural supplies (manure, fertilizer, fungicides) at wholesale to take advantage of the lower prices and reduce the cost of the supplies. He will use the supplies to cultivate his crops and increase his crop yields, which will allow him sell his crops at a better price at market. That way he can keep working and in the near future expand his crops, generating higher earnings and offering his family economic stability and a better quality of life.
