Julio Fernando's story

Julio's an honest and hardworking man. He's from the rural community of Tangüis Alto.

He learned to earn a living working the land, like his parents. Now he's the main source of income to support his wife and two-year-old son. Julio likes his job and wants to continue growing in agriculture until he has some good working capital that's his own.

At the moment Julio needs to request the help of a loan, which he's going to invest in growing potatoes. That way he'll make the most of some seed he has. With your help he'll be able to cover the expenses for the agricultural inputs he needs to take care of the potatoes. The quality of his harvest will depend on this.

Julio wants to get some land of his own in the future to continue in farming; he hopes to provide for his family's well-being.
