A loan of $500 helped purchase a horse and a cart.


Leonardo Melecio's story

In the municipality of Nagarote, Leonardo Castellon works hard every day selling firewood, watermelons and nuts, starting early in the morning. It's important to mention that he has a small farm where he grows some vegetables and gets the firewood, however, to get to the farm and transport the wood and vegetables is difficult because it is far away and he needs a mode of transportation. This is why Leonardo requests a loan, which he will invest in the purchase of a horse and a cart to use on his job and this way transport the products and look after the horse by providing good nutrition and care.
