A loan of $600 helped to repay a previous loan.


José Alfredo's story

Jose is 28 years old and has been working as a farmer since he was very young, helping his father feed his family. Now he is a father himself, and has three children. Aside from farming, he also works as a guard at another farm. His wife is a fulltime mother and homemaker.

He has lots of farming experience, since he worked at his father’s side at a very young age. He has been a guard for two years.

He will use the money from this loan to repay a construction loan for his home, which carries a high interest rate and causes him problems with supporting his family because of the high interest rate. This assistance will help him level his finances and provide a better quality of life for his family.

In the future, as his children grow, he will make some improvements to his home. He will also keep his children motivated to continue their educations, and provide them with all they need s that they can become professionals of means.
