Elkin Humberto's story

Elkin, 36 years old, is the married father of four children. He has lived in the countryside his whole life, where he learned to work in agriculture thanks to instruction from his father and older siblings. Thanks to all this, he now has bean, pea and tree tomato crops. The harvest from these crops is collected and sold in the marketplace of the municipality where he lives. This work is the main source of income for his family, with which he provides for all of the household's basic needs.

The borrower is a man with drive, who works tirelessly to help his family to get ahead. He is currently asking for a loan to invest in the purchase of wholesale agricultural inputs (seeds, fungicides, pesticides and fertilizers). In this way he will be able to maintain continuity in his business, and to better care for his crops so that he has a more productive harvest. This will help him to increase his earnings. He will continue fighting to achieve his dream of having his own plot of land, where he will grow his crops and generate better income to guarantee his family's economic stability. This way he will be able to continue giving his children a good education and to improve the whole family's standard of living.
