A loan of $1,000 helped to buy ten sacks of compost for his crops.

Manuel De Jesús's story

Manuel, 63, was never able to get an education because there was no school in his community. He is single and has no children, but his parents depend on him.

Manuel grows corn, sorghum and beans and has been in this business all his life. His cropland is half a kilometer from his home and he walks there and works an average five hours every day.

The loan he is requesting through Credicampo is to buy ten sacks of compost for his three hectares of corn. He also plans to pay for land rental.

His goal is to continue in agriculture so his parents will never lack anything.
