A loan of $1,300 helped to buy manure, fertilizers, pest control and herbicides to improve his land.


Andres's story

Andrés is 39 years old and lives in his own home with his parents and son. He makes a living raising livestock and growing corn and sorghum. He sells his products in several markets near his home. With his earnings he is able to cover some of his household expenses.

Andrés is requesting a loan to buy manure, fertilizer, pest control and herbicides to improve his land, which he shows in the photo above. He will continue sowing his crops and in this way obtain a higher standard of living.
