A loan of $7,250 helps a member to buy seeds, compost, and two hoes.
Manguitos Group’s story
“Since I was a child I helped my father plant corn. We worked the field as a family in order to pay for the home expenses,” says Martin, who lives in a community surrounded by hills and crops of sugar cane, corn, beans, papaya and lemon. He is a member of the Manguitos group, whose name is a reference to the most common fruit in the region.
He currently has 10 years of formal experience growing and selling corn. His children help him with different tasks in a process that lasts the whole year. For Martin, the loans that VFMéxico has provided him have been very useful for the development of his occupation. At this time he plans to buy seeds, compost, and two hoes to till the land since his goal is to increase his production this year.
