Etanislado's story

Estanislado is a humble farmer. He is married and has 8 adult children. He owns a grocery store where he sells basic household products such as rice, sugar and beans. In addition, he also keeps cows.

Estanislado started farming at the age of 20, working as a day laborer. He later decided to start growing pasture for his own animals. Every day he works hard in order to support his family. This is the reason he decided to start working for himself, working very hard to make extra income. Estanislado and his wife have both worked hard to make progress in life. Estanislado always pays his laborers for their daily work. His goal is to continue growing his business so that he can make more profits.

Estanislado is requesting this loan to buy wire and pay laborers to repair his animal pen. This will help him as he will be able to make progress with the work on his farm. He will be able to grow the best pasture possible for his cows.
