Roberto Antonio Gómez L. is 29 years old. He lives in the Loma Negras community in the town of La Concepción with his wife, who supports him by taking care of the house and selling the produce once it is harvested. Don Roberto has been working in the fields for ten years. During this time, his greatest difficulty has been the problem of infestations and illnesses that affect the cultivation of tangerines. He wants the loan to buy fertilizer sprays and the supplies necessary to apply them to all the plants in order to be able to save the harvest, since he doesn't have sufficient capital to buy fertilizers.
