Luís Alfonso's story

Luis is 49 years old. He works as an accounting supervisor for an electrical energy company. But the hard work he does is farming. This is where he gets the baisc foods for his family. His children also help him. They are adults and independent. One of them works making bread. Luis has his Grade 9 and this has not been an obstacle for him to get ahead together with his wife, who does the housework and his children. Luis has always farmed and found the accounting supervisor job 5 years ago. When he is not doing this he is working on his land as it is the only way he gets food for his family.

Luis will buy all the supplies he needs to prepare the land where he grows corn with the loan like seeds, manure, fertilizer and pay for labor. At the moment he does not have the money to do this and the growing season has started. Luis in the future would like to plant a variety of crops besides the ones he has now and have a variety of products for his household.
