Raúl's story

Raúl is a 47-year-old man; his family consists of hi wife and three children aged 14, 17 and 20 years. He was raised his entire life in the countryside and thanks to his father learned to do agricultural work there; he has grown several types of potatoes and peas for the last 30 years. The borrower is a hardworking dedicated man for he works long days on his crops and sells the harvests he gets and has earned income that way to support his entire family.

He will use the requested loan to buy agricultural supplies (manure, insecticide, fertilizer, fungicide and potato and pea seeds) to continue with his crops and to yield larger harvests to sell. His main dream is to be able to expand his crops because he has land available to do so and thus increase sales of crops and generate higher income to provide better quality of life for his family.
