Julian
Julian, age 53, is a farmer. He is married and has seven children, three boys and four girls. Two of them are married, and of the five that live with him, one is a student. Julian lives in Sololá.

He cultivates and harvests vegetables like onions, potatoes, and corn. He later sells them in the market in his town. He has been doing this business activity for 35 years. This is the work that his father taught him in order to support his family. He continues doing this work because it is the primary source of income for his whole family in which he helps his sons and daughters.

That is why he needs to continue growing these types of vegetables. Another season is soon to start, and this is the season when the harvest is of better quality and more profitable. He is requesting a loan for 4,000 quetzales to buy potato and onion seeds and other farming supplies that he needs.

He wants to continue supporting his only son that continues in school. His biggest dream is to see him graduate with a career.
