Joaquín lives in the Entre Ríos community with his three siblings and his wife, making his living in farming. They work in their own plot of agricultural land which Joaquín acquired with a lot of hard work during the agricultural colonization, migrating from the areas where there was little economic movement.

He currently produces citrus fruits, yucca and rice on an annual basis, and they sell these products to intermediaries who come to buy directly at the place of harvest. The family work together to produce the crops, although they hire help if necessary to help tend and harvest the crops.

They currently have 1 hectare of citrus fruits which has already been harvested and sold, which is why they are seeking the loan to tend to the plot of land (weeding), and subsequently fertilize it so that production next year is at its optimal rate. With this loan, Joaquín will be able to carry out the above work on his citrus crops.
