Eusebio's Story

Eusebio, 24, grows ornamental flowers and Poinsettias for a living in Rincon de Zirahuato Michoacan, Mexico.

He has 10 years of experience and started his own business two years ago because he wanted a steadier source of income instead of struggling because of the lack of job opportunities. His father taught him to grow and care for flowers.

A loan from World Vision will help him buy soil, manure, insecticides and plastic covers for his greenhouse. The only covers he has right now have been ruined by the weather. The new supplies will help him improve his flowers’ quality and increase his profit.

Eusebio would like to expand his sales to other Mexican states. However, he does not have his own vehicle and must use a transportation service, which will use up part of his profit.

He dreams of having a large orchard of his own. He owns some land and would like to grow avocados to sell at the wholesale market. He also plans to invest in his greenhouse. He hopes to hire people from his community for the fall months when he has a heavy load of work.

Eusebio and his wife, Anabel, have three children. Two are in elementary school, and the youngest is not yet 2.

Industry Info

The Agriculture business sector covers all farming and livestock activities. Some entrepreneurs request loans to help in securing supplies and equipment. Others want to buy more animals to breed or purchase feed and medicines. The majority of our loan clients live in rural communities where agriculture is already understood as a business model. It is for this reason that approximately 50% of our loans are in the agricultural sector.

Eusebio's Community

Crecencio Morales is a mountainous community that is home to an indigenous population of approximately 8,000. Elder members of the population still speak the Mazahua indigenous languages and weave traditional clothing.

Residents of Crecencio Morales live in poverty, depending primarily on agriculture, commerce, and the production of artisan goods for income. Most homes are made of wood and have only two rooms with dirt floors. Families cook their meals on wood stoves, as gas and electricity are limited. Few residents have access to toilets or running water; most use outhouses and fetch water from community wells.

In Crecencio Morales, World Vision is providing families with business training; helping farmers increase agricultural production and incomes; attending to the health needs of malnourished children; increasing access to safe water through the installation of water tanks; and providing tutoring and recreational opportunities.
