Guilber is a very modest person, with limited economic resources. He is single and lives with his parents, sharing the expenses and responsibilities of the household. Guilber's main activity is the growing of beans and peanuts. In the current farming season, he suffered a decrease in production due to early frost which affected the ripening process. As a result, Guilber has had a loss of revenue which he had planned to invest in the purchase of young bulls. Nevertheless, Guilber still wants to buy the livestock. This is why he is asking for a loan, which will help him a lot. He says that raising the cattle will provide him with an added value, because he will have animal drawn traction for his personal use and to rent out.
