A loan of $600 helped purchase agricultural supplies to plant basic grains such as ammonium sulfate and herbicides.


Miguel's story

Miguel is 61 years old and has worked in agriculture since the age of 12. He only reached the third grade due to his financial situation. He lives with his wife and their seven children of which two help him with his farm work. Miguel used to work in public works, but after some time he dedicated himself solely to agricultural work.

With the loan, he will purchase supplies to plant corn, as the first rains will be coming soon and he wants to take advantage of them. The supplies that he will purchase are ammonium sulfate and herbicides, among others. Miguel's dream is for his children to have an education and for each of them to have a dignified job.
