Juan Felipe's story
Juan is a farmer. He lives with his wife and two children, ages 22 and 28. He has been farming for 30 years. His schedule is from 7:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. He grows corn and beans every year. He has now planted new seeds, and he needs fertilizer and herbicides for them. These materials are indispensable in farming. He plans to cover this expense with a loan because he does not currently have the financial solvency to buy them with his own money. Juan’s intention is the same as every year, to have a good harvest. This serves him to feed his family, and it allows him to continue with his work.
