Raul
Raúl lives with his family, his wife and four children, who are 15, 16, 18, and 20 years old. He does not have family members abroad. He is a farmer and also a miller. He learned the work from the time he was young, and he is thinking of putting in his own mill in order to earn more income. The loan he needs will allow him to invest in two manzanas of land (a manzana is about 7000 square meters) in order to plant pipián (a type of squash), for which he will buy fertilizer, herbicide, insecticide, and pesticide, and prepare the land. This will help him to earn more income for his family. One of the risks would be climate change. His dream is to earn more income and expand his house.
