Raúl's story

Raúl is 48 years old, married, and father of two children. He is a basic grain farmer. He managed to study up to third grade in primary school. He started his farming activities with the help of his father from very little since his father liked to take him to the farm so he familiarized himself with the activity.

At sixteen years old, Raul's dad decided to give him some land for him to plant on his own. He planted one hectare of beans, which performed very well. With the sales from his crop, he managed to buy a cow and left part of the money to keep working.

Currently, Raúl has many years of experience in growing basic grains. He also has cows which generate a little extra income in the season. His future plans are to keep growing basic grains, keep improving his family's living conditions, invest in more cattle, and in his main activity: agriculture.

Raúl is requesting a loan to Fundenuse and Kiva to buy agricultural supplies to improve the bean crop and increase performance.
