A loan of $525 helped buy carrot seeds and organic manure.


Pedro's story

68-year old Pedro is single and has five children, a son and four daughters. They live in the San Antonio neighbourhood in Solalá.

He grows carrots on his land located a short distance from his home. He learned farming from his father at an early age so decided to continue this work when he grew up. It provides enough income to support his family.

Pedro has had his own land for 50 years. He is now seeking a loan of Q 4,000.00 to buy carrot seeds and organic manure for his fields and crops.

His dream is to extend his farm so he can earn more money and improve his family's standard of living.
