Jose Higinio's story

José, 44, lives with his life partner and two children. He is a farmer who grows corn and beans. He has been doing this agricultural work for 13 years and it has been a very valuable experience. José is very dedicated to his work and he's responsible and honest. He stores his harvest in his barn, which is shown in the photograph, to later sell them at the markets that sell staple crops, near his home.

He wants to invest in supplies and for that reason he is requesting a loan, to allow him to buy corn and bean seeds, insecticide, tools etc... in order to be able to obtain better harvests and better profits which will help him to cover the expenses of his home.
