Omar is a hardworking person from a humble background. He has worked since he was very young in agriculture but for the last six years he has made a living specifically in the production of grapevines. He has three children who depend on his financial income. He has lived with his partner for more than four years.
Currently he is requesting a loan to purchase nets for his land to protect against hail since in this time of the year the area in which he produces is prone to this kind of natural disaster that can affect his crops. In this way he will manage to minimize the risk in his production in order to continue obtaining income and in this way maintain his family.
