Timoteo is married to Pilar and they have six children. He works every day selling beans and chili peppers. Timoteo owns a plot of land near the river where he farms. At home, he sells firewood and jackets. Timoteo also raises chickens in his spare time. He has the support of his wife who works as a traveling merchant, selling traditional clothing and bags of fertilizer. She generates sales every day, as does Timoteo, in order to earn an income.

Timoteo is requesting a loan so that he can buy basic food products and generate a few more sales in order to survive. He is grateful for the help FAPE has provided since it is a distinct institution that has been supportive of his work. His dream is to have his own packing business so that he can ship goods nationally and internationally. Timoteo has faith in God that his dream can become a reality.
