A loan of $525 helped to invest in planting staple grains.


Juan's story

Juan is 57 years old. He did not get an education because at that time, resources were very tight for his family. He is married and has six children, of whom only two live with him; the rest already have their own families. His wife is a housewife, taking care of the family and their children.

Juan works in farming. He has done that for more than thirty years, and it was his father who taught him the trade. In addition to that, he raises livestock like pigs and poultry. He works all week and he has to walk four kilometers to get to the place where he does his work.

He needs the loan that he is requesting to invest in planting staple grains.

With respect to his dreams, he wants his children to stay in school so that they can become professionals in the future. He would also like to improve his quality of life.
