A loan of $600 helped to care for his squash crops, purchase herbicides and pay for labor.


José Herberth's story

José is 37 years old. He was able to reach the fourth grade. He is married and his wife is a homemaker. They have two children who live with them and no one else is dependent of José. He works growing squash. He learned this trade from his grandfather since he did not grow up with his father. It takes him 35 minute to get to where he works and he rides his bicycle there. He works from 6am to 1pm.

The loan that he is seeking will be used to care for his squash crops, purchase herbicides and pay for labor. His dreams are to have more squash crops and for his children to grow up and have a better future.
