Oscar Rene's story

Oscar lives with his mother and his siblings. He is married. As a way of having income with which he can cover his personal expenses and contribute to the family expenses, he raises basic grains (corn, sorghum, and beans) and does work as a mason. Oscar was abroad, and he came back to the country in search of work in a business of his own in order to better himself.

He will invest in the purchase of compost, seeds, fertilizers, pesticides, and insecticides. With the help of these supplies, he will give his crops better treatment, with which he hopes to have better income that will help him to begin to raise pigs.

His goal is to expand his business little by little in order to continue having income with which he will help his family and pay off his debt.
