Carlos Alberto's story

Carlos currently lives with his mother and his sister. After the death of his father, he became the principal bread winner of the family. He works in agriculture, planting basic grains and raising livestock, activities he learned from his father as a child. The loan he is asking for will be used to purchase basic agricultural supplies like fertilizer, herbicides, pesticides, insecticides and to care for his livestock. This investment will help him to be able to treat his herd better, to buy them food and for the cultivation of his crops, all of which will help him to earn more money. His dream is to be able to give a better quality of life to his family.
