Andres
Andrés is a humble farmer, 66 years old, originally from the region called La Laguna, in the outskirts of Boaco. He has 8 adult children and is married. He plants corn and beans, an activity which he has been doing for more than 20 years on land that he has acquired bit by bit through his own effort and hard work. He also has cows that he has purchased with income from his crops and money from his children. Andres does his work with help from his children, and with labor that he contracts for the season. He takes his crops to Managua to sell where he receives a good price for basic grains. He is requesting a loan to pay for labor and to purchase two cows and all supplies he needs for planting, such as fertilizers for the next crop cycle..
