Benjamin's story

Benjamin is 40-years-old and lives with his wife and children in their own home. He makes his living cultivating corn and rice. He has worked in agriculture for two years which have given him a lot of experience that allows him to get the best crops. He sells his harvests in the markets around his community and his has many customers who prefer his products' quality, good prices, and above all, the good service he gives. He needs to invest in planting so he requested a loan that allows him to buy seeds, fertilizer, manure, insecticides, herbicides, etc. Benjamin has good references for his capability to repay from his acquaintances. He is very responsible and ensures he can pay off the debt within the prescribed period. He hopes to improve his household's economic security.
