A loan of $500 helped to buy herbicides, insecticides, pesticides, and fertilizer, among other things.

Victor Manuel's story

Víctor lives with his family: his life partner and their three children, who are 7, 9, and 10 years old. He does not have family abroad. He farms for a living, growing corn and cucumbers. He learned this business from his parents and he has been working in it for 15 years. He works every day from 6:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and he has not had any problems.

The loan he is asking for will allow him to buy farming supplies, such as herbicides, insecticides, pesticides, and fertilizer, among others. This investment will help him get farming materials for his cucumber and corn crops. He will be able to help his family with his earnings.

Víctor's dream is to build a new home and pay for his children's education.
