Juan Francisco
Juan, an agricultural officer, is 51 years old, married, with six children. One of his children still lives at home, the rest are living independently. He has a primary school education. He lives in a small town called Empalme, which is located on the outskirts of Boaco. Since he was young he has been growing basic grains. He learned this skill from his parents. Because of his poor economic situation he wasn’t able to continue with his studies. He didn’t have support from anyone and he had to work in order to eat. In addition to growing corn he sells beans and milk. He has been working in agriculture since he was a child and a young man. With his earnings he buys cattle and little by little he has been installing irrigation. Irrigation is very useful as it lowers the risk to his crops. He sells his corn in his community.
He would like this loan in order to buy calves and to pay for workers to clear his land for the new corn crop cycle. He would like to continue investing in the raising of young cattle.
