Humberto De Jesús's story

Humberto is 47 years old, married, and has two children. He has always lived in the country, and, thanks to his family, he learned to cultivate a variety of plants and to tend livestock. Due to a lack of education and employment opportunities, he has decided to start his own business, for which he is requesting a loan to purchase a dairy cow and agricultural supplies (seed, fertilizer, fungicides, etc.). With this he will plant a vegetable crop that will allow him to generate income in order to provide for the basic needs of his family. Humberto dreams of having a tiered plantation of crops, selling his produce that he harvests, and thus being able to provide for a better education for his two children and a better quality of life for his family.
