A loan of $600 helped to buy farming supplies (insecticides, weedkiller, fertilizer).

Jose Rafael's story

José, 52 years old, is married and has three children. His children have already formed their own families, so José lives alone with his wife. José has made a living growing basic grains since he was young. He learned this trade from his father and today he works alongside his own children. José will use this loan to buy farming supplies (insecticides, weedkiller, fertilizer) in order to prepare his land for sowing during the summer season. This will help him to produce an abundant crop, increase his earnings, pay off his debt, and improve his family's finances.

Due to his experience, this work is not difficult for José. He desires to continue working the land in order to provide for his family and expand his land for growing.
