Ivan De Jesus's story

Ivan is a fighter who has overcome great challenges in his life through tremedous effort. Fourteen years ago, he separated from his wife and went to another city to live with his four children. His financial situation was adversely affected. He began to farm to generate the income his household needed, but he always lacks working capital to improve his land.

Ivan will begin planting soon and is applying for a loan to buy supplies such as sprinklers, manure, pesticides, and weed killer to protect his plantings from the harsh winter. He longs to improve his business and to have a vegetable stand where he can sell his harvests.
