Ricardo's story

Ricardo works in agriculture and livestock. He is 55 years old and lives with his wife who is 45 years old. He also has a son. Throughout his life he has worked at farming the land and owning livestock. He learned this activity with his parents and carries it out every day. He will invest the loan in the purchase of seed and fertilizer and payment of the rent on the land. The purchase will help him to increase his crops and also obtain better earnings. His objective is to continue farming and to manage to have a better quality of life.
