Mateo
Mateo is a country dweller who is honest and responsible. He raises pigs and grows basic grains. Mateo lives with his wife and two-year-old daughter. He occupies his time with farming activities, such as growing corn and beans, as well as raising cattle and pigs. Mateo begins his duties at 5am and quits when all of his tasks are completed. He has been in this business for 11 years.


Mateo is requesting a loan to buy farming supplies and fertilizers, specifically compost and herbicides, so that he can sow one plot of farmland. The purchase of these supplies will help to facilitate and increase his harvest. Since his crops will be free of pests and diseases, he will be able to sell them. The risks to his farmland include the changing conditions.


Mateo has many dreams, such as obtaining better output from his corn crop, that will enable him to have better profitability so that he can transform the conditions of his own life and that of his family.
