Oscar Orlando's story

Don Oscar is a 50-year-old farmer who grows corn and beans. He also has been cultivating loroco for the past four years. The products he cultivates are sold to the merchants in the area.

Oscar lives in his own home and has a 17-year-old son. With the products he sells, he is able to pay the household expenses and help his son. The loan he is requesting will be used to buy seeds, compost, and other supplies. As a result, he can continue meeting his expenses since he has no other forms of income.
