Jose Guadalupe's story

Jose is 32 years old and lives with his wife and 3 children in the house of a family member. He farms for a living and for the last several years, has mainly grown vegetables. Jose is a hard-working man, responsible about his work and family. He sells his harvests in the areas around where he lives. Jose is soliciting a loan to improve the supports for his vegetables and to purchase herbicides, plague controls, fertilizers, etc. In this manner, he hopes to generate greater income for his home and, thus, be able to offer his family a better quality of life.
