Juan Amilcar
Juan Amílcar is 62 years old, he is married and has 6 adult children. He engages in beekeeping. He started this activity 10 years ago; at first he was working for a company working in this field, then, in time, with great effort and by saving, he has been able to start his own activity, which is what he now possesses. He is requesting this loan in order to buy tongs, fuel, overalls and other things that are useful to produce honey. The biggest challenge he has always had to face as an employer is the occasional lack of sales. For this reason his biggest dream has always been to establish a family-owned company and that his children can work with him.
