Silvio Ramon's story

Silvio is a humble farmer, native of the region of Lechecuagos, in the suburbs of Leon. He is father to four children who are 27, 24, 21 and 14 years old, of whom the three youngest are students. He has been dedicated to farming since infancy since his family was dedicated to the planting of vegetables and vegetables like cassava. Currently, he plants cassava and sesame, an activity that he does along with his wife and a worker. He sells the majority of his crops to wholesale buyers in the markets of the city of Leon. His expectation is to have good quality crops to sell at a good price.

He is requesting the loan to buy fertilizers and seeds to sow cassava, one of the vegetables that is most used by restaurants to prepare the typical soups that they eat during holy week and that form part of the traditional menus of Leon. One of the projects that he wishes to complete is to buy cattle, as well as strengthen the sale of honey to take advantage of having beehives and, in this way, obtain other forms of income that help give a better quality of life to his family.
