Selvin is 33 years old. He's married and has a son. He works as a bricklayer, a farmer and a welder, among other trades.

However, the kind of work that he does and enjoys the most is the one involving metal structures.

The loan he's requesting from Fundación Campo is to purchase a drill, a compressor and an emery, since the ones that he has now aren't in very good condition. He'll also prepare the land for sowing and pay for labor. He wishes to invest in this business, because it's the one that generates the biggest profits for him.
