Jaime is 24 years old, married and has a son. Since he was very young, he has worked in agriculture and livestock. He did this in company of his older siblings and father. He studied and worked at the same time. When his father died, his siblings were no longer at home. Therefore, he abandoned his studies and dedicated himself fulltime to working in order to help his mother and his wife and son.
He acquires the agricultural inputs in a city six kilometers from his house and has to pay the transport for them to be brought to his house. He is requesting the loan to buy a dairy cow. With this, he will be able to increase the quantity of milk produced (for which he already has two cows). His desire is to purchase more dairy cows and increase production.
