Bayardo's story

Bayardo is from the region of San Jose de los Remates, on the outskirts of Teustepe. He is married and has four children, and is dedicated to the cultivation of corn and beans.

He has been doing this for the last 10 years, helping his uncle with cultivation, because his father left them. Later, when Bayardo married, he decided to keep doing the same work, from which he has been able to get ahead with the income he makes from the harvest.

He Is requesting a loan to buy animals (like a cow) and at the same time buy beans and corn seed. He hopes to store enough grains to sell during the summer which is when the product becomes scarce. One of his projects is to buy cattle and land to improve their income. One of his next goals is a central location to sell milk wholesale.
