Francisco
Francisco lives with his wife and five children. He’s a farmer and raises pigs. He owns a field to grow corn and beans. He does his field work and tends to the pigs every morning. He is asking for a loan at present to buy herbicide and to pay labor costs to clear three manzanas [Central American unit of land measurement] to start his planting. This loan will help him have the site ready, free of weeds, to start his planting later. Francisco’s hope is that by applying the materials and using this loan he will be able to improve his crop yields both to feed his family and to be able to sell.
