A loan of $1,250 helped to purchase fertilizer to grow bananas.


Jose Praxedes's story

Jose Praxedes, 56, lives with his wife in the district of Buenos Aires, where the population works in the commerce, farming and cattle raising. The community is characterized by its carob tree forests, and it's located two hours away from the city of Piura, in the northern coast of Peru.
Jose works selling bananas from his plot of land to nearby hamlets. He is asking for a loan of 3,500 PEN to fertilize his land and thus have a better production to offer to his customers.
