Wilfredo's story

Sr. Wilfredo is 25 years old and lives with his common-law wife in a rural neighborhood in the town of Arizona in the Department of Atlántida. He is a farmer who specifically grows corn. Wilfredo also raises pigs for fattening.

He started working in agriculture at a very young age as a farm laborer. For the past five years, he has been producing and selling corn as well as pork. In order to plant corn, Wilfredo utilizes a rented plot of land. He is currently requesting a loan in the amount of 21,000 HNL. Wilfredo plans to invest in the purchase of supplies (fertilizer and herbicides). By managing his crops well and giving them attention, he hopes to obtain a good harvest and generate more income.

Wilfredo is motivated to continue with his business. In the future, he plans to utilize his profits by acquiring a parcel of land and a house of his own.
