César Francisco's story

César, 25, is married and his wife is a homemaker.

César works in agriculture. He grows corn and beans for sale and for family consumption. He learned the trade thanks to his father. The plot of land he farms is near his house and he works from 6 to 11 a.m.

He needs the loan to pay labor costs for harvesting the corn and beans.

César hopes to sell the harvests at a good price and provide his family with greater well-being.
