A loan of $1,000 helped purchase modified seeds for his business.

Rodrigo's story

Rodrigo is single and does not have children. He lives in Palomar in his parents' home, taking up only one bedroom with brick walls and a dirt floor. Currently, he works over eight hours a day growing vegetables. With his earnings, he is able to pay for his food and basic needs.

He will use this loan to purchase modified seeds that will help him because they do not require much water and the harvest time is quicker. Rodrigo's dream is to purchase a tractor to facilitate his work because it is very exhausting to work all day, and sometimes it is very cold or hot. This way, he will also improve his quality of life.
