Melquíades is a responsible father who has always watched over his family’s financial security, which allows to cover their basic needs and the education of his four beloved children. He accomplishes this by means of his agricultural activities. Melquíades cultivates his lands and cares for his animals on a daily basis. He clearly remembers the time when he decided to become independent, with a small number of animals and a small stretch of land. When he got married, he only owned a few plots of land. Nowadays, thanks to his efforts and dedication, he owns 20 hectares and two cows to fatten and sell at the local market. He makes his income at the time of harvest. He holds high hopes for the present season and wishes to continue making an effort to secure wellbeing and save the money needed to afford the treatment which will alleviate his wife's eye health issues. Melquíades is requesting a loan towards these ends and thank you for your disposition to collaborate with him and his family.

Melquíades es un padre responsable que siempre ha velado por mantener a su familia con una seguridad económica que les permita cubrir sus necesidades básicas y la educación de sus cuatro queridos hijos; esto lo hace intensamente a través de su labor agrícola. Diariamente Melquíades se dedica al cultivo de sus tierras y al cuidado de sus animales. Recuerda claramente cuando decidió independizarse con un pequeño número de animales de ganado y sus pequeñas tierras; cuando contrajo matrimonio, tenía en su poder pocos terrenos de cultivo y ahora, gracias a su esfuerzo y dedicación, cuenta con 20 hectáreas y con 2 vacas, para engordarlas y luego comercializarlas en el mercado local. Las ganancias son obtenidas en tiempo de cosecha y para esta temporada él tiene grandes anhelos y deseos de seguir esforzándose por lograr bienestar y acumular el dinero suficiente que le permita realizar el tratamiento médico para aliviar la salud visual de su esposa. Melquíades solicita un préstamo para estos fines y agradece tu disposición de colaborar con él y su familia.
