Filomon's story

Filomon is 30 years old and unmarried, but lives with his partner. He was able to complete primary school education. He has two children to support financially. He lives in his own house, which is very basic and constructed with local materials, and located in the Tíraque region.

Filomon's primary job is farming; annually, he produces 100 cargas (a regional unit of dry measure) of potatoes, about 1600 pounds of wheat, 4 cargas of barley, and 40 bushels of oats (fodder). He grows the products on his own land, and sometimes on his parents' land, which is in the same region.

Filomon is asking for operating capital to buy farming supplies. In the future, with higher production, he will increase his earnings.
