Dúo Sembradores De Ocaña Group's story
Gilberto is in charge of this group. He has been planting and selling roses for many years in his village. He has 2 small children and his wife is a weaver. His dream is to improve the quality of the rose plantation. He wants to harvest larger button roses with combined colors since they pay at the best price in the market and he would have more profits and thus offer a better quality of life to his family, eating better, and dressing them well. Gilberto finds it necessary to buy wood and screed for the roof of a pen that covers the crops from the cold and wind, but he does not have much money. For that reason he is asking for a loan.
