Oscar Danilo
View original language description ↓
Fifteen years ago, Oscar obtained a few manzanas (a unit of measurement for land equal to 1.68 acres) of land on which he decided to plant products such as pineapples, chayote squash, and beans. Since that time he has worked in agriculture, into which he has put his best efforts so that he can produce quality products. Continuing with this activity has cost him a lot, given that the problems that present themselves—both the land and climate—are innumerable and he must always be attentive to his crops.

Now is the time of year when his crops need fertilizer to continue their growth. The purpose of this loan is to buy fertilizers to use on his products. Oscar is married, and he and his wife have 2 small children, to whom they would give all that they have.

Oscar’s wife has a small grocery store in their house. Oscar helps her in the store when he is not in the fields. They both hope to always have work so that they can educate their children and give them a dignified roof under which to live.

Translated from Spanish by Jennifer Day, Kiva Volunteer.

Hace 15 años Oscar obtuvo algunas manzanas de tierra en las que decicidió sembrar algunos productos como piñas, chayotes y frijoles, y desde ese entonces se ha dedicado a la agricultura a la cual le ha puesto su mejor esfuerzos para producir productos de calidad. Mantener esta actividad le ha costado mucho ya que los problemas que presentan tanto la tierra como el clima son inumerables y siempre tiene que estar atento al cuido de la misma.

Este es el tiempo en que sus planatciones necesitan de abono para constinuar su crecimiento, y el fin del préstamo es ese mismo,adquirir abonos agrícolas para rociarlos a sus prosuctos. Oscar es casado y junto a su esposa tiene 2 pequeños hijos por los caules ellos darían todo lo que tiene.

La esposa de Oscar es comerciante y posee una pequeña pulpería en su casa de habitación, Oscar también la apoya en la atención del negocio cuando éste no está en el campo. Desean ambos poder tener siempe trabajo para así poder darles educación a sus hijos y un techo digno donde vivir.
