He currently lives with his wife and their 4 children. He is a very hard-worker, and has always worked with joy and enthusiasm.
Francisco would like to increase his sales and for this reason he is requesting a loan. The loan will allow him to buy: seeds, manure, fertilizers, pesticides among other things that he needs for his crops.
He hopes to receive the help he is requesting because he does not have another source of income. This way he will continue putting bread on his family's table without limit.
