A loan of $500 helped to buy material for cultivation, manure, poisons and fertilizers.


Elmer Mauricio's story

Elmer is 35 years old. He studied up to 9th grade. He has a common-law wife and she has a store in the house. He has 4 children, but only 2 of them depend on him. Elmer has always worked in agriculture and animal husbandry, because his family has always worked in the same work. He will use the loan to buy materials for cultivation, manure, poisons and fertilizers. He dreams of giving his children the adequate education and to make the store bigger.
