Jose Luis's story

José is a farmer, he lives with his family, which is made up of his wife and their children. He works planting crops of basic grains. He learned this type of work from his parents, working with them on a daily basis. He currently has his own crops to sustain his family. He does not have a set work schedule in which he does his work.

José needs to invest more in his farming so that he can plant a new crop this season. This is why he has requested a loan, which will help him to work with resources, like fertilizer, herbicides, insecticides and also to cover the costs of preparing the land.

He believes this contribution will help him so that his crop will have a better yield and that his family's circumstances will improve because they will have a new source of income as well as more food from the harvest.
