Juan José
Sr. Juan grows beans and corn, a job he’s had for more than ten years. The land where he plans to invest more money is very good for agriculture as it is fertile and has good drainage. Juan requires a loan so he can plant more crops, pay the rent for the land, and also buy food for his family. His income comes from selling his produce, and at this time he will pay off his debts leaving part of the money for household expenses.
