David Alexander's story

Alexander, age 21, is a young person who lives in the community of Chauchin with his parents and younger siblings.

When he was 12 years old, he went with his father to work as a laborer, with his shovel on his shoulder. He has been very happy, because he knows that his efforts were "one more dollar" for his home. At age 18, Alexander began to work his own crops, and he got ahead with the help and experience of his father, who counseled him as to how to care for the plants.

Now Alexander wishes to receive a loan in order to plant an extra piece of land with super potato seeds, left over from his previous planting. Thus his crops will generate a good profitability, with which he will support his parents in covering certain expenses that they incur.
