Felix Bautista
View original language description ↓
Felix is 39 year old, and lives with his wife and four children. He is a head of household who works tirelessly to improve the standard of living of his family, always looking for opportunities to help himself and his family get ahead. For these reasons, he currently works selling wood at wholesale. It is hard work, and involves first buying the eucalyptus trees so that later he himself can cut them down into smaller pieces of wood. His primary tools are an electric saw and an axe. Once Felix has finished cutting, he selects what he is going to move and the amount that will fit into his truck for transport. Felix has been in this business for five years, and this actity has allowed him to support the education of his four children. He also plants and tends to several crops, including potatoes, on his land. Felix makes great efforts to see his family get ahead each and every day, which is why he always seeks opportunities that may help him in this endeavor. He seeks a loan to buy more trees so he can take advantage of the upcoming winter season when trees are scarce. He hopes to, in this way, stabilize his earnings and have the ability to produce a greater quantity of product to offer for sale.
