Rodrigo's story

Rodrigo has always been known as a very hard-working man and, thanks to this quality, he has managed to make progress together with his family, offering them a good quality of life. He started learning how to grow crops at the age of 11, working alongside his father. He has been in this line of work his entire life. Thanks to all of the experience he has gained, Rodrigo is well known for producing very good quality crops and this has set him apart from the rest in his customers' eyes. Seven years ago, Rodrigo decided to set up his own business and he used some savings that he had to grow his first lot of fruit. From that time on, he has been working independently and making the income he needs to provide for his household (his wife and four children). His crops have suffered quite a lot as a result of the harsh winter season and so he is looking for a loan that will allow him to buy fertilizers, irrigation equipment, insecticides and fungicides. In this way, Rodrigo's business will continue moving forward and he will be able to continue making the income he needs to cover his household expenses, providing his family with a good quality of life and better opportunities for making progress.
