Pánfilo lives in the community of Entre Ríos with his wife and three children. He takes care of them and supports them in their studies.

He makes a living in agriculture on his own plot of land, which they acquired with a lot of effort during settlement, having migrated from areas where there's little economic activity. Currently he grows fan palms on three hectares and citrus on one hectare. He also earns an income from his neighborhood store.

Pánfilo sells his crops to intermediaries who buy where the harvest takes place. It's a family production, but he also hires temporary workers who help him take care of the fields and harvest the crops. His fan palms generate a good income for him and they're easy to manage.

Pánfilo's requesting the loan to take good care of his crops so he can get better harvests. With this loan he'll be able to do what he proposes with his fan palm fields.
