Juan Carlos's story

Juan lives in his own house with his wife and their three children. He has been growing corn and sorghum for 15 years. This is the way he earns a living and is able to bring home the daily bread. He does his business activity of farming year after year. It is the only way he knows of earning a living. He is a very hard-working, honest, and responsible man. In spite of his living conditions, which are very humble, he does not tire of working and giving his family the best.

He has decided to request a loan to buy the main agricultural supplies: fertilizers, pesticides, and seeds, etc. He will also improve the land where he plants, which is shown in the photo. He hopes to have favorable results because he does not have another source of income. He trusts in God that he will manage to get an abundant harvest, which will allow him to continue bringing home the daily bread.
