Mario's story

54-year-old Mario lives in his own home with his wife and children who are 19,17 and 7 years old. Currently, they study. Mario has been a farmer for eight years. His principal crops are corn and beans. When his harvest is ready, he stores it in the silos shown in the photograph to later go out and sell it to the people that sell staples in the markets near where he lives. With the sale of his crops, he is able to cover some of the household expenses, but it is not enough to cover the costs of cultivation. This is why he is requesting a loan that will allow him to buy seeds, fertilizers and manure among other things, to obtain a better harvest and in this way have greater income to give his family everything they need without any limitation.
