Erick Jarling's story

Erick Jarling S. H. is a young man of 26 years of age. He is married and lives in the San Ignacio neighbourhood. His wife works in a tax-free area, using her earnings to help with the household costs, and in her free time she helps with the farm work.

Erick and his wife have been farmers since they were 18. One of the principle problems of production is the lack of maintenance of the land, which is causing them to lose crops. For this reason they are seeking a loan to buy fertiliser, which protects the seedlings. This will help them to increase sales and give them the necessary capital for new life projects and/or better economic conditions.
