Juan Pablo
Juan, 23, has two dependent children. His wife is Ana, 22. She helps with the agricultural work, taking the lead in the management of the family. Juan and his wife had children very early, assuming a big responsibility when they were very young. Juan Pablo and his family have scarce economic resources.

He worked in agriculture with his father from a very young age. He even had to leave his studies to manage and run his parents' land, which they can no longer work like before because of their age.

Juan Pablo has a family to support and feed now, so he's requesting this loan to buy seeds and soil amendments to increase his crop and his income.

This loan will help Juan Pablo and his family a lot to have better living conditions, because agriculture is his only source of income. He also says that in future opportunities he'll make investments with bigger loans that will give him profits and more income.
