Juan De Jesus
Juan, 48, has worked cultivating the land for many years. With much dedication he grows corn and beans that allows him to provide daily bread at home. He’s noted for being a hardworking, honest and responsible man. He lives with his family group consisting of his wife and six children. He and his wife work hard to move their family forward and to provide them with better conditions than they have had. Thanks to his agricultural knowledge he’s able to provide sustenance for his home for it’s his main source of income and the only way he knows of earning an honest livelihood.

With a strong desire for self-improvement, he approached this institution to request a loan since the planting season has started and it’s necessary to start planting as soon as possible. This is the reason why he’s asking for a loan because he needs to buy agricultural supplies like seeds, manure, insecticide, fertilizer, herbicide, etc. for the crops. He trusts in God and in his work; that in this way he will obtain an abundant harvest that will allow him to access better quality of life for him and his family.
