A loan of $1,900 helped a member to buy agricultural inputs.

San Felipe Xi Group's story

Juan Carlos, 39, is a farmer in the department of La Libertad. He belongs to a solidarity group known as San Felipe XI in which all the members work in agriculture.

Juan Carlos is married. He has three children between the ages of 7 and 16; all three currently attend school. He studied up to the first year of middle school. He had to work from an early age to help support the family because he was from a low-income family.

Juan Carlos has 24 years of experience growing corn, beans, millet, and citrus, which allowed him to work with his parents. Currently this is what has helped him support his family.

Juan Carlos needs the loan to buy inputs so he can plant and take care of his basic grains crops as well as his citrus. He hopes to generate the income he needs to keep on giving his children an education so they can have better opportunities in life and he can achieve his dream of seeing them become professionals.

In this group: Juan Carlos, Luis Enrique, Marvin Edgardo
