Vitelio's story

Vitelio is 62 years old and lives in San Rafael Oriente, in San Miguel department. He is a farmer and lives with his wife and 28 year-old daughter. Everybody in his household works. Vitelio has worked as a farmer since he was very young, when his father would take him along to the fields with him. Vitelio doesn't work fixed hours. He currently needs a loan to invest in his upcoming sowing season.

Vitelio plans to spend his loan money on buying fertilizers and preparing his land. This help will give him continuity in his work which he has carried out for years with a lot of dedication and appreciation.

Vitelio's aspirations are to own a large plot of cultivated farmland, to have a good harvest and to share with his family.
