Rigoberto's story

Rigoberto attended school until the sixth grade. He has a spouse and three children, one of whom is still dependent on him. His spouse is a homemaker.
Rigoberto learned to farm from his father, beginning when he was 8 years old. At this time he cultivates 1 hectare of corn which is 15 minutes walk from his home. In addition, Rigoberto raises livestock. He works from 5:30 to 10:30 a.m.
Rigoberto needs a loan to buy, raise, and subsequently sell livestock. His dream is to make a good living from his work and to support his youngest child in becoming a professional.
