Erasmo Francisco's story

Erasmo Francisco Manzanares A., 59, lives with his wife in the Caralampio neighborhood. She works to help with the household expenses. They have seven children. The 24 and 23 year olds help with the farm work. The children who are 20, 17, 13, 11, and 10 go to school. The plan for the family is to improve the condition of the roof since it leaks a lot when it rains.

For 25 years Erasmo has been a farmer. He started this work by means of the agrarian reform. His future plan for his crops is to be able to do work that conserves the soil.

He will use the loan to buy fertilizers and manure to apply to his crops, achieve good production, and sell at a better price in the market. He thanks Afodenic for their support.
