Felipe's story

Felipe is 82, married, and lives with his wife in a village full of vegetation and beautiful landscape. For the past five years, he has grown avocados at his home. He already had a lot of land and saw that his grown children were able to make a profit at it. He decided to start his own farming business. He is requesting a loan to purchase avocado plants, fertilizers, and insecticides to better grow his avocados. He says that he has already had various harvests. His sons help him sell the avocados for a good price in a village with a central market.
