Rodrigo's story

Rodrigo is 62 years old. He is married and the father of 6 children. He has spent his whole life in the country, where he learned farm work and has done it for most of his productive life. His last job lasted 4 years. He worked as a farm laborer in flower cultivation, but a year ago he had the opportunity to become a partner in a farm and run it. He signed a contract in in which expenses, costs and profits are divided in equal parts. This has allowed him to generate the income he needs to support his home. He is a driven, enterprising, hardworking man. He says that his age is no barrier to do what he likes and he has fought tirelessly to overcome obstacles that come along due to the high costs of agricultural materials. He has not had a constant cash flow because his customers pay him every three months. That is the reason he is asking for the help of the loan in order to invest it in paying for some monthly expenses (payroll, shipping, and utilities). These are expenses that can't wait and this way he can continue supporting his crop. Rodrigo dreams of having his own crop, whose earnings would allow him to continue paying his basic household expenses and enjoy and calm old age at his family's side.
