Juan Abel's story

Juan lives with his family. He has two children who are 3 years and 1 year old. Juan is a farmer who grows corn, chili and beans. He has been working on his own crops for six years, having learned the business from his father who taught him the whole process. He has a lot of experience. Juan is requesting a loan to buy materials he needs for his crops: manure, herbicides, foliar fertilizers and corn seed. This loan will allow him to have everything he needs to protect his crops from pests and strengthen his production. Juan's aim is to work hard so that he can improve his crops and also his family's living conditions.
