Alcides
Alcides is 48 years old and lives in Espinal, a region of Estelí. He is single and has a basic level of education as he only studied up to third grade.

Alcides works as a farmer and also raises livestock. He learned this business through his father who taught him agricultural work. He started out preparing the soil and then took charge of milking and caring for the cattle. This is how he gained experience. He now has three manzanas (one manzana = 1.68 acres) of land where he grows beans and also keeps cows. He works together with his brother to get ahead in his business.

Alcides needs this loan to buy a young bull. This will help him in his work preparing and plowing his soil to get it ready for sowing. One of his future plans is to own a dairy farm.
