Ismael Isael
Ismael is 45 years old. He is a humble farmer from the Santa Lucia district on the outskirts of Teustepe. He has been planting corn and beans since he was very young. He started this activity when he was very young and at ten years old, he worked along with his parents and siblings so that the family could survive. He was only able to complete primary school. Currently, he specializes in planting basic grains and breeds livestock in the winter. He dedicates himself full-time to planting and storing grains to have for the summer season and in this way, he is able to sell during shortage periods. One of the activities that he needs to strengthen is the livestock breeding but he doesn’t have his own land and so he does not have land that is in good condition. He needs financing to pay the lease on 3 “manzanas” [land measure = 1.75 acres] and to purchase insecticide to protect his crops and animal pastures from blight. One of his next goals is to plant watermelon to diversify his crops and to have his own land so that is animals will have better conditions.
