A loan helped to purchase potato seeds, cabbage plantlings, and fertilizer.


Manuel's story

Manuel is 34 years old and lives in the municipality of Sololá, in the department [equivalent of a US state] of Sololá.

He is requesting another loan to invest in growing potatoes. Before, it was impossible for him to farm because the credit organizations don't support agriculture. Manuel needs a loan again to buy supplies (potato seeds and organic & chemical fertilizer) to grow his potatoes.

With this loan, he is sure that he will have a very good harvest because he will be able to use this financing to maintain his crop, and with its sales, he will ensure the loan repayment.

Manuel's goal is to finish construction on his house because right now it is missing doors and windows.
