Luis Humberto's story

Luis Humberto P. N. is a 45-year-old man who lives in the Juan Ramón Padilla neighborhood. He is married and his wife is responsible for a store, which helps with the household income. They have five older children who are independent and support their parents with monthly payments for their expenses. Mr. P. N. has been a farmer for the past two years. He started with the help of his wife’s uncle who told him about the benefits of the business. After this, he decided to dedicate himself fully to this line of work. Pest problems and diseases on his lands have caused a decrease in crop production, which is why he is requesting a loan to purchase agricultural supplies such as fertilizers, fungicides, insecticides and manure. This way, he can improve the maintenance of his crops and have a better harvest that benefits his sales and his family’s economic situation. In reinvesting the earnings in his business or in family plans such as the infrastructure of their house which is in inhabitable condition, it will help to improve the living conditions of him and his wife.
