Felix Pedro
Felix is a humble farmer. He’s 54 years old and originally from the Riego Santa Lucia community in Boaco. He has an elementary school education and is a very hardworking man who has been raising beans for 30 years. He has five adult children living on their own.

Felix began farming, helping his parents on their land, when he was 15. He later decided to go out on his own after gaining some experience. He succeeded in the business and now he only works with it during planting season.

Now he not only raises basic grains, but also other types of vegetables such as onions on land that he bought with the profits from his work. He pays for labor because there is too much work for him to do it alone. He sells his products in his community and all around the zone. He wants to do all the planting labors, such as cleaning the bean seed so that production will be greater than in previous years.

He is asking for this loan to pay for labor and buy supplies, fertilizer, and compost which will be helpful because he will be able to do his harvesting on time and in a good manner. His future plans are to repay the loan and invest in more land. His expectations are to maintain his business active in order to be able to get ahead and have a better quality of life.
