A loan of $600 helped to purchase fertilizers, plant food, seeds etc. to be able to improve the soil.


Jorge's story

Jorge is 49 years of age and has been farming for several years, planting beans and corn. With the sale of his crops, he is able to cover the expenses he has for his home.

He is a responsible, honest and hardworking man and lives with his wife and their four children.

Jorge is requesting a loan to purchase amendments for his crops such as fertilizers, plant food, seeds, etc. to improve the land that is shown in the photograph because what he earns is not enough to cover these costs and thus he will have better income and better economic stability.
