A loan of $500 helped to buy compost, seed, insecticide, fertilizers and herbicides.


Jose Porfirio's story

José has harvested basic grains for 25 years and sometimes he hires grooms to help him in the business. He works 7 to 3, and he learned this trade from his father. He is single and still lives with his family. He needs this loan to buy compost, seed, insecticide, fertilizers and herbicides. With this purchase of agricultural inputs needed, he hopes to get healthy and abundant crops. He identifies abrupt climate changes as a risk for this season. His dream is to improve his family lifestyle, and cancel this loan and expand his business.
