Carlos Ivan's story

Carlos, 31 years old, works in agriculture, specifically growing yuca. He has been doing this for the past two years, and sells his goods in different markets located near his home. Additionally, he works as a carpenter. Through these activities, he is able to support his home expenses. He lives in his family's home with his wife, who helps him sell his goods, and their two children who are 1 and 7 years old.

Carlos is asking for this loan in order to buy fertilizer, insecticide, and herbicide to protect his crops, and give his family a better quality of life.
