Chester Misael's story

Chester Misael Ríos is 31-years old and lives in the neighborhood of La Porcina (The Pig), located in Ticuantepe municipality, along with his wife, who works as a merchant to help him with household expenses. They are responsible for their two children, a 10-year old boy who is in school and a 3-year old little girl.

His plan for his family is to improve the family's living conditions to provide better well-being. Chester has worked in agriculture for 10 years; his greatest difficulty is the lack of financing which affects him immensely. His farm already lacks fertilizer and other necessary supplies, causing weak yields. With this loan he will buy supplies and fertilizer to obtain better crops which he can sell for a better price in the market.
