Wilfer Alonso's story

Wilfer Alonso, twenty-nine, lives in a district of Sonsón, Colombia with his wife and two children. Since he was thirteen he has done farm work, which he learned from his father. A while ago he bought a plot where he plants beans, tree tomatoes, and Andean potatoes, which he sells on the town market square. This is is his only source of income, and there have been hard winters that have resulted in crop losses. To revive his finances Wilfer Alonso is seeking a loan to invest in the purchase of seeds, fertilizers, and insecticides. His greatest dream is to have his own parcel of land and buy a house for his family.
