Agustin lives in his own house with his wife and four children. He has been growing corn and beans for several years.

He uses the profits that he makes from the sales to cover some of the household expenses. Agustin is requesting a loan to be able to buy the necessary supplies such as herbicides, fertilizers, manure, seeds, etc. to continue growing his crops and to be able to give his family everything it needs.
