Fredis Alberto's story

Don Fredis, 57 years old, has been farming and raising cattle for more than 25 years. He cultivates corn and sorghum and stores them in some granaries, which are shown behind him in the photo. Then he goes to sell his crops to different basic grains dealers. With the earnings he obtains from his sales he pays for household expenses. He lives with his wife and children, who are 6, 5 and 2 years of age.

Don Fredis is requesting a loan to purchase more agricultural supplies, such as seeds, compost and fertilizer as well as other farming items that he needs. This is his only source of work and it enables him to continue providing the necessities for his family, without any problems. .
