Cosme's story

Cosme A. M. is 63 years old and married. He and his wife have been farming for 35 years. Their 6 children are grown and are able to support their own homes.

It was thanks to the Agrarian Reform that Cosme and his wife were able to buy their farm. They have faced numerous problems with agricultural diseases eating away at their harvest. Cosme is requesting a loan for his farm to buy fungicides and fertilizers for phytosanitary maintenance, which will eradicate crop diseases and increase his farm yield. In the future he will diversify his crops to include other cash crops to improve his income, allowing him and his wife to improve their humble little house and ease into a peaceful and well-deserved retirement.
