Boris José's story

Boris has been working for 30 years in agricultural production. He learned to do field work from a very young age by working with his father, and since then he has been working in this field to generate income. Currently Boris is married and has four children and in order to generate the income that his family requires he raises crops. In spite of encountering some difficulties, he has always struggled to succeed and to bring his family a better quality of life. Approximately one year ago the winter was at the point of destroying his harvest and it severely affected his economic situation and that of his family. For that reason he is now looking for a loan in order to purchase fertilizer and to re-fertilize his fields in order to harvest good quality products and be able to receive a good price for them.

His greatest dream is to provide his family with a better quality of life than what they can currently access, and also to offer his four children a higher quality education.
