José Romel's story

Jose is in a relationship. His partner is a homemaker. He has five children, of whom three are dependent upon him.

Jose has worked in agriculture since he was 15 years old. He learned this skill from his father. The parcel of land that he cultivates is 30 minutes from his home. He goes there on foot, and he works from 5AM until 1PM.

He needs the loan to buy agricultural supplies, and to pay for labor in order to grow corn. Jose dreams of giving his children a quality academic education.
