Félix Ramón's story
Félix is a young farmer of 23 who learned to do farm work when he was very young, thanks to the teachings of his parents, who have been farmers and day laborers throughout their lives. Now he has his own planting of yucca, whose harvest is collected and sold in the regional market. In addition, and to complement his income, he does work as a day laborer on different farms in the region. His drive, tenacity, and dynamism lead him to look for new alternatives that will allow him to advance. For this reason, he is applying for the support of the loan, with which he wants to buy wholesale agricultural supplies (compost, pesticides, and fertilizers, among other items), which are necessary to prepare the land and thus get a much more productive harvest, which will allow him to sell at a better price and thus increase his profit margin. Félix only wants to continue this income-generating activity, because he is happy doing his work, and in the future he wants to expand his plantings to generate employment opportunities that will allow him to improve not only his quality of life, but also that of other neighbors in the area.
