A loan of $375 helped to buy fertilizer in order to fertilize his crops.


Serafin's story

Serafin, age 34, live with his spouse in the Buenos Aires district. The population there works in agriculture, commerce, and with livestock. It is two hours from the city of Piura on the northern coast of Peru.

He has been producing and selling bananas for over five years. He distributes them to the outlying communities in his district.

He has requested a loan for 1,000 soles to buy fertilizer in order to fertilize his farm. This way he will have a better production to offer his customers.
