Primitivo is 39 years old. When he was little he had an accident and since then he has suffered from an illness. Despite this and due to his poverty, he began to work in agriculture when he was still only a boy. His last harvest suffered the consequences of a natural disaster and his small parcel of potato crops did not mature well, which caused the harvest to fail and he did not obtain good revenue. He is currently requesting a loan in order to purchase organic compost and seeds since he was left with no capital. In this way he will be able to increase his output and his revenue.
