He's very hardworking. He always has worked happily and enthusiastically. He earns his living as a farmer. He grows the main basic grains, such as corn and beans.
Rigoberto wants to increase his sales, so he visited the offices of Integral to request a loan to buy seed, soil amendments, fertilizer, pesticide, and other supplies to be able to improve his plot of land, which is shown in the photograph.
He wants to have the help requested because he has no other income. This way he'll continue putting food on the table for his household without any limitation.
