Gerónimo P. Castellón is 43 years old and has been married to Nemesia Mérida de P. for more than 23 years. They have six children and live in the Segunda Candelaria community in the rural area of Chaupy Suyo, to the north of Colomi.

Gerónimo works as a farmer and his wife helps him sell the products that he harvests at the Colomi market. Nemesia gets up early to send her children to school and afterwards she takes care of the animals.

Geronimo came to our office in person to request a loan to purchase organic fertiliser (chicken manure). He told us that he has invested his savings in building his house, which means he doesn’t have the money to purchase fertiliser for his farm.

His main goal is to request a second loan so he can finish building his house.
