Carlos Mario's story

Carlos, 21, is a single young man who's studying for a college degree in the city. He gets up at 5 a.m. with his parents. They depend on his agricultural work, which he learned from them. To get to the fields he walks a kilometer and works with them in the morning. Later he attends school in the afternoon and takes care of a farm at night.

The loan Carlos is requesting is to buy soil amendments, seed, pesticide, and herbicide to plant his fields and get a good harvest so he can support his family.

His goal is to work in a company and give his parents a decent home.
