Fredy's story

Fredy, 41, is a happy and responsible man. He has lived with his wife Jessica for 12 years. He loves her very much and they have two children together. They care for them in the house that they bought some years ago. He has worked in agriculture since he was very young and his main crops are potatoes, peas, and corn. He plants them on his own farmland. What he likes most about his work is being able to clear the weeds from his crops. What he doesn't like are the frosts that come on due to the rain, because he loses many crops, generating losses. For this reason, and because he is a very smart person, Fredy also has livestock. He raises rams, pigs, and guinea pigs, which he fattens and then sells at a good price. This way, he meets his family's needs. Things are going well for him in his business, so he is thinking about buying a ranch, where he can care for his animals better. Fredy will invest the 3,500 soles in organic fertilizer to nourish his fields and he promises to make his payments on time.
