A loan of $1,200 helped to buy seeds, manure, herbicides and insecticides.

Juan Carlos's story

Juan is married and lives with his wife and two children. He doesn't have any outside help. He learned to grow bulk grains from his family, and has been doing this independently for six years now. This activity has not caused him any problems to date.

He will invest this loan in the purchase of seeds, manure, herbicides and insecticides. He will also pay the people who help him to prepare the land, which will allow him to go about planting with no problems. The results will be greater productivity, quality grains, and better earnings, with which he will pay off the loan.

Juan dreams of repairing his home, providing his family with better food and health, and giving his children a quality education.
