A loan of $650 helped purchase potato seeds and fertilizers.

Juan's story

Agriculture is an activity that is only suitable for people who love that Earth as if it were a mother, a producer of futures for life. He is 42 years old and has four children who are good students in the school where they live. The job that he performs with dignity under a blistering sun is farming. He produces potatoes, carrots, cabbage and corn, which for him are a good source of income with which to sustain his family. and improve their living conditions. He also works as a day laborer around the community.

He will use this loan to purchase potato seeds and purchase organic fertilizers so that he can have a good harvest and provide better quality produce to his community. Juan's aspirations are to purchase more land to grow his crops, and to see his children become professional in different fields.
