Mauricio's story

52-year-old Mauricio has been a farmer for 13 years. He grows beans and corn. When his harvest is ready, he stores it in the silos shown in the photograph to later go sell it to the staple goods sales points near where he lives. With the sales, he is able to cover the household expenses. He is a responsible, honest and hard-working main. He lives with his wife and five children. He is requesting the loan in order to be able to buy inputs for his crops such as seeds, fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides among other things, since what he earns is not enough to cover these costs and in this way he will have a better income and more economic stability.
