Dairo's story

Dairo works as a mechanic in a motorcycle repair shop, but he has decided to start his own business and work independently. Dairo wishes to devote himself to working in the field, growing vegetables. He plans on combining this with raising fish, a trade in which he has a little experience.

He needs a loan of $3,000 to prepare the land where he will harvest his crops by purchasing manure, irrigation and pesticides. He will also purchase a small plot to raise and breed his fish. He will sell his products in Rionegro marketplace in Colombia. His biggest dreams are to have his own home and give his two young children and wife the best quality of life possible. They are his inspiration and motivation for working everyday. By starting this business, he will be able to dedicate more time to his family because his business will be in the house that they live in.
