Jesus Angel's story

Jesús is a 29-year-old farmer based in the municipality of Sonsón, Colombia. From his childhood he learned of farm work due to the fact that his family has always resided there. He worked with his father and thanks to this he learned the trade. By tradition he continued with this activity and today it is his source of income to support his family which is composed of his wife and their two children who are 8 and 5 years old.

Currently he has tamarillo, beans and Peruvian ground cherry planted. With the purpose of getting a good harvest, Jesús is requesting a loan with which he will buy farming supplies (fertilizers and seeds) and in this way generate a more abundant and better quality production.

His greatest dream is to be able to adapt his home to guarantee better living conditions for his wife and children.
