A loan of $425 helped to buy supplies.

Wilmar Del Carmen's story

Wilmar is a humble farmer from the Coyolito area, outside of Estelí. He has benefitted from financing which has allowed him to buy supplies for his crops so that they could be on time and of good quality. Now he wants to plant tomatoes and cabbage because the new crop cycle is starting. This is a good product to produce because very few do this in the winter. He expects to have good production results. He would like to sell his products to supermarkets because they pay better.

He is asking for this loan to buy compost, fertilizer, pesticides, and pay for labor to raise half a hectare of cabbage. This loan will allow him to increase his income because he will buy the supplies he needs to guarantee his harvest and expand his production for the next cycle. His future plans are to buy two cows so he can have another source of income. His goals are to guarantee the loan with a good harvest and reinvest the remainder.
