Walter
Walter is 30 years old and lives with his wife and their 4 children. He has been very familiar with agriculture since he was young; thanks to his parents he knows how to work the land. Now he supports himself entirely from corn production. He works all day cleaning, irrigating and fertilizing his fields so that his production will be good. He has always liked cleaning his fields because it is important and is lighter work than many of his tasks. The most difficult part of his work comes when the rains attract mosquitos that damage his plants. He has to buy insecticides to combat that threat.

Walter wants to improve his family's quality of life; that wish provides the motivation for his arduous work. He will invest the loan in the purchase of fertilizer and insecticides to help him face nature's diverse threats, with the aim to have the best production in his community in a few months.
