A loan of $400 helped to purchase fertilizer, seed, herbicide, insecticide, and pesticide.

Miguel Angel's story

Miguel learned farming from his father when he was very young, sowing basic grains. As an adult, he chose this occupation in order to have an income to cover his household expenses. His business has been operating for 20 years, and his schedule is from 7:00 A.M. until 3:00 P.M. He lives with his wife and children. Don Miguel strives to cover the basic needs of his family, as they all depend upon him.

He needs the capital to purchase compost, seed, herbicide, insecticide, and pesticide. With them, he can easily prepare the land in order to continue planting, and he will protect his crops from pests. He hopes that his production will be higher, so that he can provide for his family and sell the other part.

His dreams are to have better earnings with which he will give his family a more dignified life and pay off his debt.
