Jose Rigoberto's story

José Rigoberto is a 43-year-old man who lives in the Transito municipality of the department of San Miguel. He is married and lives with his wife, with whom he has three children ages 19, 9 and 5. He works in agriculture.

He has been working the land ever since he was 15 years old. His parents instilled in him the love of working the land. He grows corn and beans, and he is currently requesting a loan in order to buy organic and chemical fertilizer for his crops. The money will greatly help him to have a good harvest. One difficulty for him would be unfavorable rainfall for his crops.

José's aspirations are to continue working the land so that he can earn a living, and to help his family get ahead, supporting them so that they do not lack food and improving their quality of life.
