A loan of $275 helped to buy supplies for growing beans and corn.

Filemon's story

Filemón is a very humble 45 year-old man from Isiqui-Estelí. He is married and has two children who he raised from a very young age as his own. He has taught them how to love and cultivate the land and has made good men out of them. Filemón started working in farming when he was 15 years old with the help of his friend Ramón Diaz. He couldn't rely on his father as he abandoned him at a very young age.

Filemón requested this loan to buy supplies that he needs to grow his corn and beans. He hopes to have a successful harvest, and not lose it, so that he can expand his plantings in the not-so-distant future and make improvements to his home.
