Hernan De Jesus's story

Hernan has farmed since he was 15 years old, thanks to the fact that his father had the same livelihood. This is how he learned the skills involved in raising crops.

Hernan is married and the father of a nine-year-old son, to whom he has always wanted to offer a good education and a better quality of life. Thanks to his crops, Hernan has been able to raise his family, and at the same time this has allowed him to fulfill his family's dreams.

Thanks to the good quality of his products, Hernan has a very good number of customers, which guarantees him good monthly sales. With the intention of getting his crop started, Hernan is seeking a loan that will give him the chance to purchase agricultural supplies for his crop, such as fertilizers, irrigation supplies, insecticides, greenhouse plastic sheeting, and other things.

Hernan hopes that in this way, his crops will turn out to be good quality, and that he will be able to sell them at a good price. In addition, he hopes that in this way, he will be able to generate greater income for his household, with which he will be able to improve the quality of life for his wife and son, and offer them greater opportunities for progress.
