Francisco Luis's story

Francisco, 46, lives with his common-law wife and has been working as a farmer for 12 years. He comes from a humble rural family where he learned everything related to animal husbandry and agriculture. Currently, he sells pigs and also grows crops on the land where he lives. He is able to earn enough income to maintain his household.

Francisco is an active, hard-working man who struggles daily with much care and dedication to provide for his family. He is requesting a loan to continue in his work. The money will be used to buy more piglets ro raise and farm supplies (fertilizers, fungicides, etc.) to achieve a more productive, profitable harvest.

With his humbleness and simple lifestyle, Francisco only wants to give his family economic stability and food on the table. This, to him, means they will have a good lifestyle.
