A loan of $1,500 helped to buy a chainsaw.

Lucio's story

Lucio is a hardworking and responsible person who has worked in agriculture for 15 years. He owns banana and yucca plantations and also works as a chainsaw operator to earn extra money so he can provide for his family all year round. This income allows him to buy food and clothing and pay for other household expenses. Lucio needs help buying a new chainsaw as the one he has is old and faulty, which slows down his work. This has affected his earnings, meaning he has had less money for food and for his children's school supplies. He also wants to buy a motorised pesticide sprayer so that when he fumigates his banana and yucca crops it doesn't take him so long and he can rest a little.
