Santiago's story

Santiago is a 45-year-old man. He is the father of seven children ranging in age from 10 to 18 years old. Along with his family he lives in the Pajales canton.

To earn a living Santiago works growing maize. He enjoys doing this kind of work, as it is an essential crop in the region where he lives. Additionally, it always generates revenue. He has been in this business for about 10 years.

Santiago wants to take advantage of the winter season and is thus seeking a loan to invest in the purchase of seeds, fertilizer and insecticides. With this new investment he hopes to increase his corn yield and thus sell more.
