Justo's story

Justo, age 49, is married and the father of five children. He works as a farmer, and he works alone. He does not want his children to get involved; he prefers that they attend school.

Justo has more than ten years' experience in agriculture, and he wants a loan to buy seeds and compost to be able to have greater income. Justo does all that he can to take care of his health - luckily, there are few cases of people with Coronavirus in his community.
