Eleuterio
Eleuterio, 34, is from Tomatoyita District in the outskirts of Boaco. He’s married and father of a 3-year-old son. He has worked growing corn, beans and wheat for the last 19 years, an activity he learned as a family tradition since his parents worked in the fields and he was raised among the crops and milking cows since most people teach their children to plant when they are still very little in order to survive. At the age of 15 he already knew how to plant fields.

When he married he became independent from his parents and now has his own house and cows. He works alongside his wife in order to move the family forward. His chores start very early in the dawn hours and end after sunset. His wife helps him make cheese and to get the milk ready to be sold and they earn extra money this way.

Today, he’s asking for a loan to buy fertilizer and manure and to pay labor costs to plant corn and beans because he’s hoping for a good crop yield of quality products. One of his plans once he’s repaid the loan is to improve the cattle-raising in order to increase milk production.

A los 15 años ya sabía hacer huertas. Al casarse se independizo de sus padres y actualmente tiene su casita y sus vacas, él trabaja junto con su esposa para sacar delante de su familia. Sus labores empiezan desde muy tempranas horas de la madrugada y finaliza hasta que el sol se oculta. Su esposa lo ayuda a hacer cuajadas y preparar la leche para salir a vender y de esta manera conseguir otras formas de ingresos.
