A loan helped to purchase seeds to plant gladiolas.

Arturo's story

Arturo is 63 years old and single. He has no children.

Arturo works as a farmer though he does not currently have any employees. He has had a farming business for 40 years. He has had better times but he cannot retire because he does not have a pension. He therefore has to continue working while he still has strength and good health. For this reason, Arturo wants a loan to purchase seeds so he can plant gladiolas.
