Dionisio is a hard working man responsible for his family. He’s been a farmer for the last 25 years. He’s married. His adult children are independent and the minors work alongside their father to obtain a better future.

Potable water is not available where he lives so this is one of his short term projects. He has faced difficulties, like the gases from the volcano that affect the growth cycles of his crops.

He started out with help from his father who was also a farmer. His future for the business is to improve the farm by doing some soil and water conservation as well as planting living fencing.

Thanks to the support from the financial institution through the loans he has been making gradual progress. This loan he’s asking for will be used to buy farming supplies and seed that he needs to diversify his crops and obtain profits.
