Pedro Jesus
Pedro, 59, is from the Asedades region, located on the outskirts of Teustepe. He's married and the father of six children. Two of them, between the ages of 9 and 4, are in his care; the other four are already independent.

He works as a farmer, making a living growing corn, wheat, and beans. He started his business at the age of 15. He began working with other farmers at a very young age, then decided to work by himself, growing corn and beans for his own consumption and to sell to his customers. This has been his only job.

He has other income from selling his curd cheese. With the profits from his crop and the sale of his cheeses he has been able to buy more livestock and land. He sells his products in the same area to avoid costs. His expectation is to continue growing with the sales in his business.

He's requesting the loan to buy corn, wheat, and bean seeds, and all the supplies he needs for planting, such as manure and fertilizer, and to pay for labor for his land so he can get a better yield from his crop. He thinks the loan will help him because he would not have to sell his animals. He'll also buy the supplies he anticipates needing to better prepare the field and to get better results.

His plan for the future is to continue buying plots of land to continue expanding the area of his cultivated land.
