Jose Ramiro's story

Jose is 31 years old. For the past seven years he has been farming, especially planting corn and beans. His years of experience have allowed him to enjoy better harvests and for this reason he has lots of clients who seek him out. Also he is friendly and offers reasonable prices. He stores his harvest in the container shown in the photo as he also sells in the markets close to his residence. He pays for the household expenses with what he makes from his harvest. He lives in his own house along with his wife and two children aged 7 and 3 years old.

Jose is requesting this loan to buy seeds, fertilizer, manure, etc so he can continue farming and provide his family a more stable income.
