Cosme's story

Cosme A. Martínez is 59 years old and lives in the San José de los Ríos neighborhood with his wife, who works and helps him with household expenses. They have five children, four of which are already married and one is currently a student. His plan for his family is to improve their quality of life. Cosme has been in agriculture for the past 39 years. The biggest difficulty for him is the lack of financing and drought. He began working in this business with the support of the agrarian reform. His plan is to diversify his crops. With this loan, Cosme will purchase fertilizers and supplies to achieve a better yield.
