Carlos Alberto's story

Carlos, 22, is a young entrepreneur from a humble farming family. From a young age, he has been involved in agricultural work. This is thanks to his father, who has been a farmer all his life. He gained farming experience from a farm in the area where he lives, working as a farmer. However, with the desire to be independent and earn his own income, he wants to resume planting potatoes like he used to on his family's land. He had to stop due to lack of working capital.

For this reason, he is requesting a loan to buy seeds and agricultural supplies such as manure, fertilizer, pesticides, and more. This will allow him to start his business again and earn new income by selling what he harvests. This will help him improve his family's finances and give him the opportunity to achieve his dream of being completely independent and not having to depend on anyone else. Also, he wants to have the opportunity to change his family's living conditions and compensate his parents for the huge effort they made to move him forward by providing them well-being and a better quality of life.
