Samuel was born in the city of Santa Cruz de la Sierra. Now he lives 32 kilometers from el Torno in the community of Las Liras. His wife Cristina is a homemaker and they have two children, who live and work on the same plot of land. They work in agriculture, planting rice and corn and they also cut wood for the carpenters. They requested this loan in order to purchase a motorcycle, since there isn't transportation to his property and this makes it difficult for Samuel to travel to different places. For this reason, he requested the loan since a motorcycle would be very useful to him. He sells the produce that they plant in the markets of el Torno, directly from producer to consumer, where it is going well since he has many customers. He is a hardworking person with a great desire to succeed and grateful to the institution for the support being offered.
