Florencio
Florencio is from the community of Las Quebradas. He is married and he and his wife have four children. They are already married and he has several grandchildren. He grows corn and beans and he has done so for 33 years. When he was twelve he was already working planting corn and beans with his father. When he was 16 he started growing his own corn and bean fields. He would pay for the expenses with the money he earned as a day laborer.

Florencio says that thanks to his hard work he has improved things. He also raises pigs and chicken that bring in other income for the home. He uses laborers for his corn and bean field that he pays every day. When he grows the corn and beans he takes them to sell in the market of Managua, since they pay him well there.

Today he needs this loan to buy materials such as fertilizer and seeds as well as to pay to plant the beans. Florencio says that with the harvest he will pay off this loan and with the leftover money he will improve his home a little.
