A loan of $750 helped to buy bean seeds, supplies and the fertilizer he will use for planting.


Efrain's story

Efraín is from the region of La Laguna - Teustepe. He is married and has 3 daughters. Two of them are still in his care, and the oldest is independent. He started working at the age of 12, helping his father in the fields. Later he decided to work independently, seeking financing from other institutions. He works growing beans and corn, and once they are harvested he takes them to Managua to sell, so he can pay for labor, since he is alone and does not have help from anyone. Now he wants the loan to buy bean seeds, supplies and the fertilizer he will use for planting. He hopes that it will go well for him and he will obtain profits from the harvest to pay off the loan and buy himself a plot of land.
