José Salvador's story

José Salvador lives with his family, his wife and daughter, in their family home. José is a very responsible and honest man. In his desire to give his family a better quality of life, he works very hard to bear the household expenses. For this reason, during the week he is employed by a project which is being developed in his town, and at the weekends he cultivates corn and takes any building work which becomes available.

José Salvador has come to request this loan to allow him to purchase seeds, fertilisers and insecticides so that he can sow this year's crop, since the adverse rainy conditions last year meant that he lost his crop. José Salvador has a lot of experience in agriculture, and this is why he is confident that once he obtains funding for the cultivation, he will recover the costs and raise the necessary income for his wellbeing and to develop next year's harvest. He hopes to have an abundant harvest with which he can continue to bring sustenance to his family, who greatly depend upon the outcome of the crop.
