Francisco Javier's story

Francisco is 48 years old, married, and the father of two children. He was born and raised in the country, where his family taught him how to perform all the farming tasks. Today, thanks to their teaching, he has corn and bean crops, located on rented land. He sells the products he harvests at the market, making this his main source of income, which allows him to support his family. The borrower is an active, vigorous, enterprising gentleman and strives daily to ensure the welfare of his wife and children because they are his main reason for forging ahead, and overcoming various obstacles as his business is very unstable and uncertain. This leads him to seek the support of a loan, which he will invest in the purchase of farming inputs (seeds, manure, irrigation, and fertilizers) that he needs in order to be able to harvest the current crop, prepare the land for planting again, and continue with his work. Francisco dreams of growing his crops and making his business more profitable so that he can offer his family better living conditions and enjoy the fruits of his arduous labor.
