Alfonso Helviton's story

Alfonso is 45 years old, married, and lives with his wife in Chimbo. He has 2 children, and lives with his wife and children. He works in agriculture and buys maize, wheat, and barley. He also sells grains. He needs the loan to invest in fertilizers, pesticides, and fungicides. He will use the loan to invest in grains and crops to improve his earnings.

Alfonso's dream is to buy a plot of land to build on and a field. In his free time, he likes to relax.
