Juan David's story

Juan David is an enterprising young man who works as a day laborer because of his lack of education and the few opportunities that exist for regular employment. Currently he is working on a daily basis on a farm. His employer has told him that he will rent out a part of his land to Juan David on which to grow crops. He has great hopes of this venture and wants to start by growing potatoes.

To start the process Juan David needs a loan to buy seed potatoes and an irrigation system as he doesn't have enough money of his own. His greatest dream is to generate enough income to improve his family's standard of living.
