Juan Antonio's story

Juan has lived in the community for 36 years. He has been farming ever since he was 15 years old. He lives with his wife and one son because the two daughters live with their families independently. The land that he works is five kilometers away. In order to get to the land that he works he goes by horse. His work schedule is from six in the morning until twelve noon. In the afternoon he takes care of his personal activities.

He has been farming for 41 years. He has a lot of experience growing corn and beans. His deceased father taught him this business activity, and he has taught it to his son as well as his daughters.

He is requesting the loan to get supplies like pesticides and fertilizer and to pay for the labor to finish planting 7,000 square meters of corn. He grows the corn on his own land.

He dreams of being able to expand his house in order to leave a good inheritance to his children. He also wishes to buy a car in order to better develop his farming activities.
