Noe F. is a farmer. He is 31 and lives in the Cerco de Piedra region, La Concordia, in Estelí. He is married and has 3 children. Noe began farming with his parents and brothers 14 years ago and his family would give him a little money for personal expenses.
He decided to go out on his own when he was 18 and his father gave him 2 small fields that he used to begin, and he took out his first loan. He started planting onions and he also started buying and selling cattle. He does the latter on a small scale-the income he uses for household expenses.

With this loan he would like to buy supplies to plant onions. He thinks that his crop will be stronger and he can sell it at the market for a higher price.
