Gustavo's story

Gustavo is a 38-year old man. He lives with his wife and their two children, who are 1- and 7-years old respectively. Gustavo started doing agricultural work 25 years ago, which he learned thanks to his father. Today, the work provides his family's income. Currently, Gustavo has bean, pea and tree tomato plants on the farm where he lives. To earn an income, he sells his harvest in the town center. Gustavo is a hard-working, active and dedicated man. He is constantly looking for opportunities that will allow him to get ahead. That is why he is requesting a loan- to invest in the purchase of agricultural supplies (compost, fertilizers, pesticides and fungicides). With these supplies, he will be able to continue caring for his crop and harvest excellent quality produce, which will increase his sales and his income. All of this will help Gustavo to meet one of his main goals, which is to expand his crop in order to generate more income. This would give him more stable finances and provide his family with greater well-being and a better quality of life. It would also provide an excellent education for his young children.
