Wence's story

Wence, 56 years old, began to work at a young age, and he wasn't able to study because his parents didn't have the economic means to offer an education for him. All of Wence's children still live at home with him, as they are quite young, and the older ones are studying in the community’s school.

Wence has worked in agriculture throughout his life, as his father was also in this field, and because he was the only male from the siblings, he had to help his father to cultivate corn. Once he married, he continue to work on his own, for his family. In addition, he performs daily jobs tending cattle, or buying and selling fish. He does these jobs on a daily basis and then sells the products from his own home. During the harvesting season he grows corn in a field of 7,000 sqm.

The loan that he is requesting now will be to buy farm animals (like pigs) and animal feed. Wence wants to support his children’s education as much as possible. He also hopes to be able to build a home in the future, as they currently rent and he wants to build a house for his family.
