Jose Miguel's story

José works growing basic grains. He is 28 years old, single, and lives with his parents.

He grows corn, and also has livestock. With these occupations he helps his parents with the household expenses. He has been doing this work for five years. He learned when he was young because his parents worked in the same field.

He is buying fertilizer, herbicides, and foliar in order to start cultivating the corn and also he wants to buy animal feed for the livestock. He is asking for a loan in order to go through with the purchase, having enough to improve production of the land.

With the investment he hopes to reinforce the work, improving their finances through good management, and this will also improve their standard of living.
