Jorge Alberto
Jorge, 38, has worked in agriculture for the last 13 years; his main crop is corn. When he harvests it it’s ready to be sold to agencies that buy and sell basic grains. With profits obtained from his sales he’s able to cover household expenses. He lives in his own house with his wife and son.

Jorge’s asking for a loan to be able to buy manure, fertilizer, herbicide, seeds, etc. because what he earns is insufficient to be able to buy everything needed for his crops so he can continue working and giving his family a better life.
