Sr. Adrian is 35 years old, married, and has three people who are dependent on him. He is a hardworking individual who got married at a very young age. Ten years ago, he lived in the town of Villa Quiroga with his two children. His children had to walk an hour to school. For this reason, he bought a lot through great effort and work in the urban section of Chimore. He now lives in a house where his children have better opportunities to continue their studies. Adrian wants to continue assisting them so that they can pursue a higher education. In order to support their children, he and his wife must work and help one another. His wife sells ice cream whenever they have to travel to distance places for his work. Adrian is a farm laborer, but he also works in El Chaco.

He needs to improve his income, so Don Adrian wants to buy equipment so that he can reduce the numbers of hours that he works on the land. In addition, he grows citrus and achiote trees.
