A loan of $550 helped to buy a mechanical scythe.

Arcángel De Jesús's story

Arcángel is a field worker who has worked on various farms in the region. This is where he learned about the fields and caring for the land. He also learned to reap and little by little he improved his methods. He decided to go out on his own and provide services on contract. He currently works alone and only has one mechanical scythe, so he lost some contracts. He is asking for this loan to buy a second, larger machine so he can complete the jobs he is offered. He will also have the opportunity to generate direct employment. Arcángel is humble, hardworking, and passionate about his work, so he dreams about strengthening his business, buying more machinery, providing more employment opportunities to others who know the field, and having the chance to learn about the different towns in the region while increasing his contracts. This will provide better financial stability and quality of life for him and his wife and children.
