A loan of $325 helped to buy organic compost to grow corn.


Cruz's story

Cruz is a single man aged 33. He lives with his four children, two girls and two boys, in the hamlet of Chuisanto Tomas, Santa Catarina Ixtahuacán, Sololá.

He is a man who fights to give his family a better life, and that's why he works hard in the countryside every day, growing maize. It's fairly productive, because he is able to support his family for a year with it and can sell it in the local town market.

He says that thanks to what his father taught him, he now has 20 years of experience in this business, which up until now has generated a good income and profit which help him to contribute to the household expenses.

He is requesting a loan of 2,500.00 quetzales to buy organic compost to grow corn. His dream is to make more money, which will allow him to offer his family a better quality of life.
