A loan of $250 helped to buy weed killer, fertilisers, seeds and pesticides.


Narciso's story

Narciso is 65 and lives in his own home with his wife, six children, two grandchildren and two daughters-in-law. He has worked in agriculture for a number of years. His children help him in the cultivation of corn and beans, and he sells his produce at a commodities exchange. With the money he earns and the help of his children he is able to pay the household expenses. Narciso is asking for a loan to buy weed killer, fertilisers, seeds and pesticides which will allow him to carry on growing his crops, his only source of work, and thereby continue to provide for his family.
