A loan of $1,100 helped to buy materials for building a drainage system for his crops.


Manuel Gregorio's story

Manuel has a great deal of experience, so he is a veteran at managing the land. He is humble, modest, has great people skills, and possesses sufficient energy to produce any type of crop.

Manuel currently grows bananas and cassava. He works every day by selling his harvested crops at the plaza market in the town of Turbo. Thanks to his 11 years of experience, he is fully capable of working and being an adviser in these types of trade.

The loan he is requesting will be used to buy the necessary materials for building a drainage system for his crops. These materials consist mainly of water pipes, tubes, and other items. With this loan, he will be able to take care of his crops during possible floods and continue working to support his family. Manuel has a great deal of faith in his business and high hopes from caring people.
