Estela and Florentino Contreras grow vegetables that they sell at local farmer’s markets. They started with small plots of leased land using hand tools to cultivate a variety of fresh produce.  As their business grew, so did the plots of land. This year, they leased a large plot of land and knew they’d need to upgrade their equipment. Through Huerto de la Familia, the Contreras family connected with Community LendingWorks to purchase a tractor to increase their production and grow their business. “With this tractor we can increase production and also try new vegetables. I believe we can bring jicama to market and that is very exciting for us,” said Florentino.
