Rogelio's story

Rogelio is a 25 year old young man who lives with his wife Dayna and their 2 year old son in their own home constructed of brick. From a very young age, he was always involved in the various activities that his parents were doing to support the family, such as growing organic cocoa. Rogelio makes his living through agriculture. Thanks to the support of his parents and in gratitude for his hard work, as part of his inheritance of he received a six square block plot of farm land where he grows organic cocoa, which is one of the main crops in the area.

At first, it was difficult to obtain financing to invest in grafted plants and to buy organic fertilizer, which motivated him to go to the financial institution that his parents belong to and request a loan. This is his first loan and he is grateful for the financial support he is receiving in order to move forward. In addition, he promises to make his payments on time. On this occasion, he wishes to receive 1,500 nuevos soles to purchase organic fertilizer and nourish his crops.
