Justo's story

Señor Justo, age 43, lives in a community that is very far from town. At a very early age he suffered the loss of his father, leaving him in charge of his siblings and holding the reins of his family.

Señor Justo works in agriculture production. Due to the heavy frosts recorded in that area between June 15 and 25 of this year, Don Justo lost 50% of his tomato and potato production. This led to a decrease in his income from the sale of these products. Because of this, his economic stability has suffered an instability, directly affecting the purchase of materials and supplies required for his production as well as the family pantry for the feeding of his family. To put this situation right, he has turned to a loan, with the goal of improving the quality of life for his family and reclaiming the road to prosperity.
