Melanio's story

Melanio is 52 years old and works in agriculture, growing a variety of vegetates such as potato, yuca, and corn on his plot of land which is in the community of Porvenir. This loan is his first with this institution. Melanio is going to use the loan to plant his potato crop and to prepare the land. His reason for requesting this loan is to obtain resources for planting and to live on. Melanio faces challenges in his business which include bad weather that often ruins the crops. He will use the benefits to improve the quality of life for his family as he is responsible for all the household expenses. Melanio sells his produce directly to the consumers.
