Ronald's story

Ronald is 54 years old, married with three children. He lives in his own house. He is a farmer. He has 15 hectares of land which he bought many years ago. He mainly plants cocoa as this crop is in demand by buyers and sells for a good price at the market. He also has an area of land seeded with rice and some pastureland that he rents out for cattle grazing. His production is good and the quality satisfies the demands of his buyers.

He has been in this business for more than 15 years.He has two people to help him who do the majority of the field work. In addition to his agricultural work, he also works as a teacher at a local school. He enjoys farming. As a youngster he had great difficulty finding work so he choose this field as he needed to work.

Ronald is asking for 2500 PEN to purchase organic fertilizer and cocoa seed to start planting. He is grateful for the financial assistance that allows him to get ahead. He promises to pay his installments in a timely manner.
