A loan of $1,000 helped to farm two hectares of beans.

Bitman's story

He is a humble, hardworking and friendly man. He is a native of Puerto Cabezas. He is 71 years old, married, and has five children who are adults and independent. He has over five decades of experience in the skills and knowledge needed to cultivate the land and the primary part of the sector. He has 120 hectares of land that he inherited from his father. Of that land, 50 hectares are designated to producing vegetables and basic grains.

With the goal of increasing his earnings and expanding his production, he is seeking his first loan to farm two hectares of beans in partnership with his 30 year old son. His dream is to purchase cattle to fatten up and sell.
