Teofilo
Teófilo is a renowned person in his community because of his responsibility and his good religious principles, living only with his wife. He makes a living raising cattle and pigs, and combines this with growing basic grains. He says that these are professions that he inherited from his parents and that today are the way in which he generates income in order to cover the basic needs of his family. His advantage is that the properties in which he works are his own, working them independently for the last 6 years.

He will invest the loan in order to buy seeds, fertilisers, insecticides, pesticides and manure. In this manner he will cultivate basic grains for the consumption of his family and to be sold to his customers. He will also have bran to feed the cattle. One of the main risks for him are the climatic changes that can damage his crops.

His dream is to keep working hard in order to generate income so as to have a more comfortable life in the future together with his wife, and to pay his debt in time.
