Isidro's story

Isidro is 39 years old and lives with his partner Celia, 28. They have been together for 10 years and have an 8-year-old son who is in school. Isidro tells us that he comes from a very humble family and from a very early age he helped his father in the field, which is why he was never able to finish his studies. However, he feels fortunate because he has Celia, who helps him sell eggs, milk, hens and other birds that they raise themselves on their small farm. Isidro also dedicates himself to cultivating tomatoes, peppers, sugar cane and other crops. He tells us that he is very grateful because thanks to his dedication and the support of his family he can have a worthy life and offer a better one to his son. He is requesting a loan for the purchase of more raw materials such as seeds, insecticide, fertilizer, chemicals, etc. because he wants to expand his crops.
