A loan of $700 helped to buy fertilizer and to pay labor costs.

Valmore De Jesús's story

Valmore, 56, is married with five children who are 24, 26, 28, 30 and 33 years of age. All are independent with families of their own. His wife’s a housewife and a granddaughter lives with them.

Valmore has worked in agriculture since he was a boy; he’d accompany his father to work and that’s how he learned everything he knows to this day. He works the land alone and says it’s difficult now because he’s not young anymore.

He will use the loan to buy fertilizer for the crops already planted and to pay labor costs. He hopes to harvest good grain and insure food for another year and if possible to sell part of the harvest for a good price.
