Juan Vicente's story

Don Juan, age 54, lives in his own home with his wife and three children. He cultivates corn and beans. This is how he makes a living and provides his family with their daily bread. He farms year in, year out, and it is the only way he knows to make a living. He is a very hard-working, honest, and responsible man. Despite his very humble living conditions, he never gets tired of working and giving his family the best. He is a fighter. He is always looking out for his family; they are his main source of inspiration and he wants to be able to improve their living conditions.
He has decided to approach the institution to request a loan because the sowing season is approaching, and he wants to be prepared with agricultural supplies such as fertilizer, pesticides, and seeds.
He hopes to have good results because he has no other source of income. He trusts God that he will obtain an abundant harvest that will allow him to continue providing for his family.
