Felix Eduardo's story

Felix is 33 years old. He is a resident of the rural section of the municipality of Rionegro, Colombia. Felix manages a nursery business where he sells everything except forest plants. This business is the foundation on which he is able to support his immediate family, including his child. He currently dedicates his body and soul to his work.

His goal is to improve his productivity, so Felix is requesting a loan to make structural improvements and buy shrubs to increase his inventory and improve his production capacity. His biggest worry is price fluctuations that occasionally result in losses that directly affect his earnings.

Felix hopes to create financial stability so that he can support his family and pay for his child’s education.
