Jaime Misrain's story

Jaime is a man who is very responsible with his household obligations; he has always been known for providing the best to his children. He currently lives together with his wife and their three children. He earns his living as a farmer, planting corn and beans. When his harvest is ready, he stores it in the sacks that appear in the photograph so that he can then go sell it to staple crop traders. With the earnings that he receives from his sales, he manages to cover his household expenses.

Jaime hopes to increase his sales, so he is requesting a loan that will allow him to buy seeds, fertilizers, and other supplies; it will also permit him to improve the land that he harvests, so that he can keep putting food on the table every day.
