Fermin's Group's story

Fermin is married. He is 39 years of age. He completed 2 years of primary education. He has 6 children, 2 of whom are studying. He works in agriculture, specifically growing potatoes. He started doing this work with his parents, and now has 20 years’ experience. He has the support of his wife who takes care of the household chores.

He has organised a group in order to request a loan that will be used to buy organic fertiliser, as this gives the best potato crop. He hopes to improve his farming work and in the future to have a lot of capital and of his own.
