Roberto is a hardworking person who earns a living from farming (he grows oranges) and breeding fish and on his free days he provides a transportation service. He works every day to support his four children and his beloved partner but even so he doesn't have enough money for his children's education and food and for the upkeep of his farm and maintenance of his vehicle.

For this reason Roberto is asking for a loan so he can increase the number of his citrus trees and so improve his income so that his family has enough food and clothing, so they always have good health and so that his children can study and not have to go without anything.
