Carlos David's story

Carlos, 43, works in agriculture. He lives with his wife and two children and is known in the community for his way of working for he has an impediment in his right hand. But this doesn’t limit him to do his activities. His wife’s his unconditional support for both family and material activities.

Carlos works in agriculture specifically, an activity he learned directly from his father at a young age. Because of the time he’s worked and thanks to institutions in the zone that strengthen said skills, he does his work well and becomes stronger every day.

The money will be used to bring in the harvest and he also intends to strengthen the small store his wife has to diversify household income. He mentions that in future he intends to work harder with help from his children as well as to repay the loan so that he will always have access to support for whatever activity he intends to carry out.
