Santos Demetrio's story

Señor Santos Demetrio M. H. is an elderly man who lives with his wife in the Los Amadores neighborhood. They have 7 children who are married, live independently and support themselves, as well as their parents, financially. He has been a farmer for more than 30 years. Thanks to his own hard work he acquired his farm, which has been the means of support for his whole family.

The problem of a plague threatens a good harvest of his land, which is why he is requesting a loan. He wants to purchase fertilizers, pesticides and agricultural supplies to fortify his crops and allow for a better harvest that, in the future, will grant a greater volume of sales and help the well being of the family. Above all else, he wants to improve his wealth in order to leave it to his children and grandchildren.
