Juan Alfredo's story

Juan Alfredo is 65 years old. He is a person who has worked very hard in order to get ahead in life and have everything he needs to lead a decent life. He lives together with his wife and children who help him in his business. Juan Alfredo's business is growing beans and corn. This is a very ancient trade which has passed down through many generations. It is very profitable.

Juan Alfredo is requesting a loan to buy a larger quantity of corn and bean seeds to sow. He will also buy pesticides, plastic tanks with which to spray them, fertilizers, bags, plows and all the materials he needs to enjoy an excellent harvest. Juan hopes to use his loan to improve his profits and save up so that when he is older he and his wife will have everything they need to live well.
