Erick Jarling
Mr. Erick Jarling Sánchez lives in the town of Concepción with his wife who works as a housecleaner in order to help him cover household expenses. They have a two-year son who needs their care and support.

Erick dreams of being able to buy a second-hand truck in the future so he doesn't have to rent one every time he harvests pitahaya (cactus fruit), which generates considerable cost for him. He has been growing his crop for over 12 years and the most significant difficulties he has run into are plagues and theft.

He has been able to pay back his loan on time but was unable to buy fertilizer and other necessary supplies to grow the pitahaya to proper size, color and flavor. He is in need of financing in order to buy these products and begin planting.
