A loan of $300 helped purchase fertilizers for a good harvest.


Efrain Ernesto's story

Efraín Ernesto M. is 55 years old and lives in the community of Merdardo Andino, located in the town of Ticuantepe, along with his wife who works as a trader to help him with the water, light and food bills. They have three children who are all married and independent. Currently, they have a 20 year old granddaughter in their care. Their plans for their family are to improve their living conditions since, in the house that they live, half is wood and the other part is blocks and the wood is old. They fear that burglars will rob the few things that they have worked hard to buy. For fourty years, Efraín has been dedicated to agricultural work which he inherited from his mother and has worked on his own and managed to improve thanks to Afodenic. He will invest his eighth loan in the purchase of fertilizers to improve production. He hopes to obtain a good harvet and be able to sell at a good price in the market which stocks his necessities.
