A loan of $525 helped to buy potato seed and chemical fertilizer.

Rafael's story

Rafael is a married man, 33 years old, and the father of four children, one man and three women, who live in the Sololá Department.

He grows crops, planting potatoes on several meters of land where he lives. He tells us that he has been doing this for the past ten years and that so far it is profitable and productive.

Thanks to his father's advice, he now has a secure job and does not need to go elsewhere for work. Through the work he does, he makes an income and acceptable profits which help him to contribute to sustaining his family.

He is requesting a loan of 4,000 GTQ to buy potato seed and chemical fertilizer in order to be able to grow the seed and so increase his profits.

His dream is to make more profits in order to improve his family's quality of life in education, clothing, and food.
