Carlos's story

Carlos plants and grows corn and beans. He lives with his wife and three-year-old son. Carlos learned his trade 30 years ago from his father. He works from 6:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M.

Carlos is requesting a loan so that he can buy the necessary materials for improving and strengthening his crops. He will acquire compost and herbicides so that he will have all of his supplies on hand and apply them during planting so that he can achieve better production.

His aspiration is to help his family, especially securing an education for his son. In addition, he wants to strengthen his crops and increase his harvest.
