A loan helped to buy soil amendments and to clear the land for his sugarcane crop.


Carlos One's story

Carlos is a 26-year-old young man. He lives with his wife and his three children, one age 7, another 5, and the last one 5 months. Carlos says that he's very happy with his family and that they're his main reason in life for getting up every day with the goal of continuing to strive for a better future for his household.

Carlos works for a mining company, where he works 22 days on and 8 off. Carlos stands out for being an enterprising young man. On his days off he works in agriculture growing sugarcane.

At the moment Carlos needs to clear the land and buy plants and soil amendments but doesn't have the money, so he went for a loan so he could carry out his crop and, consequently, his goals. Carlos would be very grateful for your help.
