Leandro
View original language description ↓
Leandro is a courageous man who at his advanced age still maintains the vigor and strength to go out and work every morning in his citric fields. He fulfills every aspect of his job with the same intensity that he had when he was young. Without a doubt, the cultivation of fruit is his passion and it gives him life. Now, however, he is worried about the ill health that has begun to plague his dear wife. She has begun to have the sharp and anguished pains associated with her age. Leandro’s greatest motivation is now the desire to earn a better income in order to purchase medicines and vitamins for his beloved wife. Let’s help him with his request for a loan in order to purchase more seeds and fertilizer. His goal is to increase his production and earnings in order to improve his wife’s health.
