Jesus Argemiro's story
Jesús is a 55 year old man who began work in the fields at eight years of age, accompanying his father to learn the occupation that today has provided food for his family of four children. In a time that he would rather forget, the winter cost him the loss of his crops and he suffered a difficult separation from his wife. He is requesting a loan to replant his fields from scratch. In particular, he wants to put in a system to protect his plots and to keep them safe against the winter. He will also buy fertilizer and seeds. With respect to insect infestations, he prefers to eradicate them naturally in order not to damage his fields. This loan will be a great help to start again from the ashes of what once were his beautiful fields.
