Mr. Niles is a 43-year old man who lives with his wife, Nilda, their two daughters and their son, who still depend on them. His son and one of his daughters are in school, while his other daughter is studying at university. Their home is located in Chacirapampa Monteagudo, Cantón Pedernal, where the main activities include production and sale of yellow corn and red peanuts, and breeding and sale of creole pigs. Mr. Niles and Mrs. Nilda work hard to provide for their children and their biggest dream is for them to continue studying and be able to have a better life. They are requesting a loan to buy agrochemicals to fumigate the weeds in the corn and peanut crops. This will allow them to obtain a better harvest and higher earnings, which will help to cover their children's education expenses.
