Casildo Rafael's story

Casildo, 69 years old, lives in the municipality of La Union. He has four children, a family he’s proud of, and he loves them more than anything. Raising his family hasn’t been easy since they live in a post-conflict zone where there are not many job opportunities and there’s a lot of poverty. However, Casildo has worked very hard for them.

In 1999, Casildo started a farming business and he has worked very hard to make sure his family can have a good life and a better economic situation. He would like to invest in his farm to increase his profits and be more competitive. Casildo is asking for a loan to buy fertilizers to improve his production and more seeds to enlarge the farm.
