Julio Cesar's story
Cesar is a 46-year-old man who lives in the community of Gualpi Medio, which is a few minutes away from the parish of El Chical. There, he lives with his partner and his son, who is in school. The area produces a lot of tropical fruits and the majority of residents are day workers, which is what Cesar and his partner do. They leave very early in the morning to work in nearby fields, harvesting or taking care of the crops. Thanks to being a day worker, he has acquired the necessary experience to start his own crops in a rented lot. There, he grows plantains, naranjillas (a citrus), passionfruits, lemons, and other plans. It's for this reason that Cesar is applying for a loan, to buy more agricultural supplies and tools, which will help him to raise his plants. He hopes to obtain a better income for his humble household.
