Wilmer is 23 years old. He is single and still lives with his mother. He needed to start working at an early age since his father abandoned them when he was very young and his mother is ill.
He works in the production of raw milk. He has several head of dairy cattle that produce 152 liters of milk each day. He is a responsible person and is eager to succeed and continue helping his mother.
Currently he is asking for a loan in order to buy soybean hulls for the dairy cattle because in this season of the year it is in short supply and he does not want to reduce production as that would mean less income for his family.
