A loan of $500 helped pay laborers to work his land.


Demetrio's story

74-year old Demetrio didn’t have the chance to go to school. He got married and has three children, all of whom are adults. They are married and live independently, so Demetrio and his wife live alone in their house.

He has earned his living as a farmer for the whole of his life. He learned how to farm from his father, then worked independently. The land where he grows his crops is near his house, and it’s easy to get there.

Now Demetrio needs a loan to pay laborers to work his land. He hopes to continue working with this institution and provide his wife with better living conditions.
