A loan of $725 helped the sowing of corn, sorghum and beans.

Luis Enrique's story

Mr Luis R., age 60, is married with one child. He lives in the Comarca El Rodeo, Esteli, and has worked in agriculture for over 30 years. His education is very basic. He is literate. He started this work at a very young age, since his parents were farmers. They planted onions, and he helped them to water their lands. He has also had experience in raising hogs and barnyard animals. He is taking out this loan for planting corn, sorghum and beans; he hopes to have better results from this harvest. His goal is to expand his production of basic grains; he has asked his children to concentrate on their studies so that they can have a better future and be educated; what he could not do for lack of resources.
