Carlos Jefferson's story

Carlos is 24 years old and lives with his parents and siblings in the rural community of San Francisco. He is a peaceful young man who is responsible and hardworking. Carlos grew up in the country where he learned from his parents how to make a living through farm work. He plants his crops on land that is on loan to him from his relatives. On other occasions, he rents land for planting.

The production costs for growing potatoes are high, so Carlos is requesting a loan to cover the cost of farming supplies and hiring workers to plant potatoes. This will help him maintain his working capital so that he can continue cultivating and creating jobs for his fellow residents. He aspires to have a good quality of life.
