All of them are in school. His work is farming. He works in one of the most common activities in the city of Teustepe, which is planting corn, beans, and wheat. He has been in this business for more than 12 years. Due to his impoverished condition, he was not able to go to school. He began his agricultural activity by helping his parents on the land. Then he decided to become independent. He began to plant for himself with his own money. Leandro not only takes charge of planting, but he also milks his cows. In his planting work he pays helpers. He sells his products in Managua. His expectations are to increase the production of his plantings and his animals.

Leandro needs this loan to pay for labor and buy supplies, compost, and fertilizer, which he needs to plant beans and corn this year. This loan will be of help to him because he will be able to better prepare the fields and obtain a better yield from the harvest. His future plans are to pay off the loan with the earnings that the harvest will generate and with what remains make improvements in his house.
