A loan of $250 helped to buy soil amendments and seeds to grow.


Jose Del Carmen's story

José is a 49 year-old man from Teustepe. He is married and an exemplary father to 9 children. He is a farmer, working in the cultivation of corn, beans, and wheat. He began this work 25 years ago using his own capital. With great effort he has managed to provide for his children, who help him in this heavy and difficult work.

His next objective is to do maintenance on his land and his crops. He is asking for this loan to buy fertilizers and seeds to plant, with the goal of increasing his production and having a higher quality product. He thinks that the loan will help him to increase his income and manage a constant level of maintenance for his crops. His future plan is to sew even more seeds and offer quality corn, beans, and wheat.
