Rigoberto's story

Rigoberto, 52 years old, lives in his own home with his wife and their two children. He has worked growing corn and beans for 32 years. This is how he makes a living and is able to support his household. He grows a harvest every year, and it is the only way he knows how to make a living. He is a very hardworking, honorable and responsible man. Despite his living conditions, which are very humble, he doesn't tire of working and of providing the very best for his family.

He decided to apply for a loan to buy key agricultural inputs: manure, poisons against pests, seeds, etc, and to improve the land where he plants his crops. His land is the land shown in the photograph. He hopes to have good results since he has no other sources of income. He trusts in God that he will manage to have an abundant harvest, which will allow him to continue supporting his household.
