Albeiro De Jesus's story

Albeiro, 41, has dedicated most of his life to farming, which generates an income to sustain his family and to pay for the education of his nieces and nephews. He loves his work because he is convinced that it is one of the most important jobs for the development of his country, even though there are few values and sometimes the sale prices are too low to compensate for his labor.

With many dreams to accomplish and full of motivation to get up every day and start working, Albeiro would like to increase his production of potatoes and beans in order to improve his income. He has applied for a loan to buy farm supplies, with the goal of achieving excellent production. This will provide him with an income to guarantee a better quality of life for his family.
