Ricardo's story

Ricardo, 53, lives in his own house with his wife and two children. He’s worked growing vegetables, especially chayote and corn, for ten years. He sells his vegetables in markets near his house. He has many customers because his crops are fresh and at accessible prices. He uses profits earned to cover some of his household expenses. Ricardo is requesting a loan to buy manure and fertilizer and to pay labor costs to continue with his crops and to earn higher profits to give his family better quality of life.
