Juan Guillermo's story

Juan Guillermo produces organic agricultural goods and raises animals, such as hens and chickens. He learned this work from his father, who taught him about it from the time Juan Guillermo was very young, which has given him great experience. The business generates the income Juan Guillermo needs to meet his household expenses, and also to offer a good quality of life and access to education for his nine-year-old son. Thanks to the fact that his business continues to grow, he has been able to overcome the economic difficulties he used to have at home, and now he has a lot of hens and chickens. Because the shed is very small, Juan Guillermo has to leave them outside. In order to improve this situation, Juan Guillermo is asking for a loan to build a larger shed with room for all the hens and chickens, also allowing him to offer better quality to his clients. His greatest dream is that the business will continue to grow, and that his son can achieve a better quality of life.
