Juan Antonio
Juan is 38 years old, married, and a father of 3 children (ages 14, 12, and 10, respectively). They are all in elementary school in a small school near where they live. He grew up in the Escobillo community, which is a smal, rural community in the outskirts of Teustepe and the city of Boaco.

He started to work with his dad at 12 years of age in farming. When he turned 20-years-old, he married and became independent. He works with his own resources, sowing beans, corn, and wheat while also raising cows and pigs. He also works with a farmhand, who he pays to help him keep up the land and plant. He sells his goods in the capital, where he is paid a better price for his harvest.

He is in need of funding to buy manure, seeds, fertilizer, and pay his farmhand to plant beans. He expects to pay his debt with the profits and be able to buy cows for milk production.
