Andrea’s father passed away recently. He is requesting this loan to cover the death expenses.
Andrea has been in the agricultural industry for some time now and in addition to it, he immigrates to Greece during the summer seasons. He is 42 years old and married with two children, 10 and 2 years old. He plants and harvests wheat, beans, red onions, potatoes, corn and tomatoes. He then sells the products to the farmers’ market in a nearby city. The village where Andrea lives is situated at the foot of the mountain and has a very cold climate with snowy winters. Almost all villagers have animals at home, mostly they prefer cows and goats since the terrain supports this type of livestock.
