Modesto Arcadio's story

Modesto, 39, is married and lives in Comarca La Tigra. He works on his land doing agricultural and animal husbandry work. They are very important and the main source of income to support his family. He grows corn, beans and tubers and with his income is able to insure his food supply; he also has a small herd of livestock that helps him improve his quality of life.

He needs this loan to plant 1.5 manzanas [Central American unit of land measurement] of manioc. He will prepare the soil and buy the necessary fertilizer for this project which will allow him to increase his production of tubers in order to increase profitability for his family’s common good. He hopes to be benefited in order to carry out this project.

His references are excellent since he stands out for being a dynamic, responsible, kind and above all focused on his daily chores. He does all his work aiming at improving every day and giving his family the best.
