Douglas Armando
Douglas has made a living through agriculture for several years. He grows beans and corn, and sells his harvests in the markets that are near his home. With the sales of his harvests he manages to cover the household expenses. He is a very responsible, honest, and hard-working man who lives with his wife and three children.

Douglas is asking for a loan so that he can buy supplies for his harvest like fertilizer, compost, seeds, herbicide, etc., because with what he earns he is not able to cover these expenses. And this way he will have better harvests to give his family better financial stability.
