Demetrio's story

Demetrio is a very humble person and lives in a rural area of the Conda Baja community. He was born in Carrasco province, and began working at a very young age. He has limited financial resources and supports his three children who are in school. He lives with his wife and works primarily in farming. To carry out his farm work, he contracts his neighbors as seasonal workers for the planting and harvesting of his crops. Demetrio lives in a very basic adobe house. He farms using traditional methods, using his own yokes.

Demetrio is currently requesting this loan to purchase organic manure called "Gallinaza" as well as potato seeds. This will allow him to increase his income and thus improve his family's quality of life and well-being.
