A loan of $1,400 helped to buy supplies and hire help to sow onions.


Carlos Genaro's story

Carlos, a farmer, comes from the Namanji commune, on the outskirts of Estelí. He has been in agriculture for over twenty years. It is his only source of income with which to support his family. Access to loans has been a key ingredient of his managing to produce good quantities and avoid huge losses, since such financial help was always timely, arriving when he needed it most. Moreover, the flawless credit record previous loans allowed him to build now opens him doors when asking for new loans. This one is meant to buy supplies and hire help to sow white onions on a field roughly the size of one and a half city blocks. Carlos hopes for a bountiful harvest of high-quality produce. His goals for the future include growing onions on a larger area and renovating his home.
