Juan
View original language description ↓
Juan is very optimistic, despite the fact that he has been seriously ill during recent months and has had to undergo surgery. He has bounced back as if nothing happened, and he gets on with daily life, which he enjoys in the company (and under the watchful eye) of his dear wife.


After making a decision to bring up four children, they worked tirelessly to provide for their children so that they would get on well in their community, and attain each and every one of their goals. Now, in their senior years, they can take great satisfaction in seeing the fruits of their sacrifices and constant imparting of values - their children have grown into good men and women who in turn provide for the families that they have decided to create.


Now that his work as a father is completed, Juan’s strength has been renewed and he has a new goal: to continue working, alongside his wife, to enjoy his grandchildren and have a better quality of life and health. With this goal in mind, they decided two years ago to start raising guinea pigs. In earlier years they had practiced agriculture, but due to the physical effort involved and for health reasons, they had to give it up and sell all their plots of land, so that they could devote themselves entirely to this new business venture.


Day by day they wait for their guinea pigs to grow, watching the fruits of their investment with satisfaction. In order to house the new members of this small business, they plan to improve the facilities of their farm and become better prepared in order to obtain better results. That is why they are asking for a loan to invest in alfalfa and construction tools to start their expansion project as soon as possible. Let’s support this couple, who are a fine example of the family strength. Your contribution is very important.

Juan, es una persona muy optimista, a pesar de que su vida ha estado en riesgo durante estos meses por su estado de salud y tuvo que ser intervenido quirúrgicamente; se levanta como si nada hubiese pasado y ejerce sus actividades diarias porque tiene el gusto de hacerlas en compañía y bajo la fiel mirada de su querida esposa.


Desde que decidieron cobijar a cuatro hijos en el seno de su hogar han trabajado denodadamente a fin de brindarles lo necesario para que se desenvuelvan sin dificultad dentro de su sociedad y puedan alcanzar todas y cada una de las metas que se proponen.Ahora, ancianos observan con M. satisfacción los frutos de su sacrificio y constante comunicación de valores ya que se han convertido en hombres y mujeres de bien y además sostienen decorosamente a la familia que han decidido constituir.


Teniendo en cuenta que su labor de padre ha concluido, cada una de sus fuerzas se han renovado y tienen un nuevo propósito, continuar con su desempeño laboral al lado de su esposa para disfrutar de sus nietos y elevar su calidad de vida y salud. Con este propósito en mente se animaron hace dos años a dedicarse a la crianza de cuyes, años atrás se dedicaban a la agricultura pero por razones físicas y se salud tuvieron que abandonarlas y vender cada una de sus parcelas para dedicarse enteramente a esta nueva ocupación.


Día a día están pendientes del crecimiento de sus cuyes y con este nuevo oficio observan con satisfacción los frutos de su inversión.Y para albergar a los nuevos miembros de su pequeño negocio planean mejorar las instalaciones de su granja y capacitarse más a fin de obtener mejores resultados; es por ello que solicitan un préstamo de dinero para invertirlos en la compra de alfalfa y demás implementos de construcción para poner en marcha su proyecto de expansión en corto tiempo.Apoyemos a esta pareja, ejemplo de la solidez familiar; tu aporte es muy importante.
