Jairo's story

45-year-old Jairo is a farmer who lives on a lane in the municipality of Sonsón in Colombia. He lives with his wife and three children. Every day he leaves his house very early and goes to his land where he has sown his beans and vegetables. He inherited this business from his family, who has been working in the fields for years. Jairo is a loyal lover of his work. He is grateful to God for allowing him to enjoy the fresh air and a big family. He is now requesting a loan, which he will use to buy inputs for sowing new crops and fertilizers, since he does not have the resources to make this investment.
His biggest challenge is to fight against the inclemency of the climate which, on various occasions, has brought him losses. He dreams of being able to offer his family a decent home and a good education for his children.
