Bernardo De La Cruz's story

Bernardo, 41, is single living in Comarca San Luis with his mother who helps him do the work on his parcel of land. He carries out animal husbandry work managing his small herd of cattle and also does agricultural work growing basic grains and tubers, activities that have become his main source of income for his family’s wellbeing.

He needs this financing to invest into a manzana [Central American unit of land measurement] of manioc. He will be able to prepare the soil, apply fertilizing manure thus guaranteeing a larger crop yield and higher income to improve his quality of life. His greatest goal is to continue to work to generate higher income and be able to give his family the best that way.
