A loan of $200 helped to buy supplies such as irrigation equipment, manure, seeds etc.

Mario Alberto's story

Mario, who is 48 years old, lives in a rural area and has spent all of his life working in agriculture and selling the various crops which he produces. Currently he has planted beans, cabbage and peas.

He dreams of having a large variety of crops and with this loan he will buy supplies (irrigation equipment, manure, seeds etc.) so he can have abundant harvests of a very high quality. He will sell these in the crop collection centre of the the town where he lives, where he already has a high demand from the wide clientele he has built up. This will have a positive effect on his income and he will be able to continue to look after his family's wellbeing.
