Many farmers were losing their crops and fields due to untenable loans and corporations forcing them to sell their property. St. Joseph’s Peruvian Mission provided mostly no-interest micro loans to more than 200 farmers in the San Jacinto area. This initial gift allowed the farmers to begin to turn a profit, secure their properties and attract competitive buyers from throughout Peru and other countries.
