Jose Alfredo's story

Jose is 36 years old and lives with his wife and their two children, aged 8 and 6 years, in their own home.

He works growing corn, pumpkins and fruit such as melon and watermelon. He has worked in agriculture for several years and he has gained a lot of experience, which means he gets the best crops. When his crops are ready, he stores them in barns as you can see in the photograph, and later goes and sells them in the surrounding areas of the community. He already has lots of customers who prefer his crops because of the quality, good prices and above all for the good service.

He needs to invest so has applied for a loan to buy seeds for corn, beans, insecticide, herbicide, e.t.c. Jose has good payment references from his acquaintances, and is very responsible. He guarantees that he will be able to pay the debt back within the prescribed period and also hopes to bring financial security to his household.
