Jose Cecilio
49-year-old Jose lives with his wife and 3 children. He is very responsible as far as his family obligations are concerned, having always demonstrated his desire to do his best for his children. He has always gone about his farming work with tremendous commitment, good cheer and enthusiasm, and sows basic grains such as corn and beans every year. Jose would like to boost his sales, and so is applying for a loan to buy manure, fertiliser and pesticide, among other things. He hopes to receive the help he has requested since he has no other source of income and it will enable him to continue to provide for his family without any restrictions.
