Jose Gilberto's story

José, 44, works in agriculture growing irrigated corn; he also works in construction. He’s able to support his family with these activities. He’s been doing them for ten years and works for himself; he learned from his father who also worked the land. He’s currently doing the planting for this season and needs a loan to buy six sacks of manure and to pay labor costs. With this, he will increase production capacity hoping to have a good harvest. José’s objective is to improve his family’s conditions and hopes to accomplish this by means of his work offering his family a better life.
