Luis Eugenio's story

Eugenio, age 44, is a rural farmer who is determined and devotes himself to his work so that he can get ahead. At a very young age, he began working the land as a day laborer as part of a crew in the area where he lives. This allowed him to set aside some savings so that he could begin cultivating his own crops. He planted his first crop with a friend and they split the proceeds. Thanks to his hard work, Eugenio gradually became independent.

He currently plants his own crops that are doing well, so he hopes to achieve good production. Eugenio has the opportunity to plant on a bit more land, but he does not have sufficient working capital to pursue investing in more crops. For this reason, he is requesting a loan to buy seeds and farming supplies, and also to pay for land rental and labor. By pursuing this opportunity, he aspires to achieve better production from his crops.
