Santos Fermin's story

Santos has been dedicated to the cultivation of basic grains such as beans, corn and sorghum for 15 years. He works alone and only when necesary hires laborers to help in the effort. His work schedule is from 7:00 in the morning to 3:00 in afternoon. He learned his trade from his family.

Santos is married and lives with his wife and daughter, who are economically dependent on him. He wishes to buy fertilizer, seeds, pesticides, insecticides and herbicides. This will give good development for his crops and increase productivity. This way he will be able to feed his family and sell the rest. He hopes for better income with which he will repay the debt.

His project is to continue to expand the area under cultivation, improve his economic situation and give a better life to his family.
