A loan of $800 helped to buy manure, fertilizer, herbicide, pesticide and pay for labor.

José Ándres's story

José is a responsible and hard-working married man who is the father of 12 children. He has been farming since he was quite young. He grows corn, beans and sorghum. His wife is a housewife.

In the winter months José works on the land undergoing the process of preparing it. He starts by getting rid of all the weeds until the fields are clear. Then he seeds and doing this he uses the herbicides and fertilizer to obtain a quality product. He also makes tiles, an activity that creates more revenue.

José needs a loan to begin the preparations for planting buying manure, fertilizer, herbicide and pesticide and pay for labor for the people who help him. José's dream is for his children to complete their studies and become good people who are active in their community and are recognized as honest people who inspire confidence within the community.
