A loan helped to buy four bags of fertilizer in order to cultivate 7,000 square meters of corn.


Jose Justo's story

Justo, 71 years old, is very well known for his work promoting development in his community. He is married and lives with his wife. She takes care of the household chores and their three children, all of whom are students in the community school. At the same time, she helps him to grow basic grains such as corn, beans, and sorghum.

All his life Justo has worked growing basic grains, because his father taught him well how to do that. Additionally, he is a leader in the community, because he represents the community as the president of ADESCO.

He needs the money from this loan to buy four bags of fertilizer in order to cultivate 7,000 square meters of corn. The first fertilizing window is approaching, and he urgently needs it.

In the future, Justo wants to have a better quality of life for his children, and to teach them through his advice to be very responsible.
