Santos Roberto's story

Mr. Santos Roberto Busto is 45 years old and lives with his wife, who helps him with the household expenses, in the San Juan neighborhood. They have three children. One is 22 years old and already married and one is a 19-year-old student who helps with the farm work. They also have a 12 year old who is a student. Mr. Santos would like to improve his family’s living conditions.

Mr. Santos has worked in agriculture for 33 years and finds pests and lack of money to be the hardest parts. He got into this business by his own efforts. In the future, he plans to diversify his crops. With the loan money, he will buy fertilizer and supplies so he can get a good harvest and sell at a better price.
