A loan of $1,000 helped to buy seeds to plant cassava and to make brooms.


Felix's story

Felix was born in Santa Cruz. He lives with his partner Simona. She is a housekeeper.

He has worked in agriculture and also has made brooms for 4 years. They live and work in Paso al Chivo some 25 kilometers from the town of Torno. He grows cassava to sell and he plants sorghum to use in the making of straw brooms, which they later sell in Santa Cruz.

He will use the money from this loan to buy cassava seeds, and the necessary items needed to prepare the land for farming. This is his 5th cycle with Emprender and he is very grateful for the support it offers.
