A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase manure, seeds, fertilizers, pesticides, and to pay laborers.

Andres's story

Andrés lacks the financial resources that would allow him to purchase immediately the materials he needs to keep growing corn. He has therefore applied for a new loan and will use part of the loan funds to purchase manure, seeds, fertilizers, and pesticides. He will use the rest of the loan funds to pay laborers to prepare the soil and remove weeds that would otherwise interfere with a successful crop.

Andrés's last loan covered the cost of the harvest and met the needs of his family and his customers. Andrés's family now has a better diet and new clothes, and their health has improved.
