Sebastián's story

Sebastián is a young man living in the country with the desire to overcome obstacles, which leads him to seek alternatives to get ahead. At 19 years old, he works as an operator at a flower farm, but in order to supplement his earnings and occupy all of his free time he wants to alternate his job with an independent business. He wants to buy cattle to raise and put the cattle into production. The animals will be located on the farm of someone he knows who will not charge him rent. This is why is asking for the support of the loan, to buy calves to raise, thus starting his new productive project, taking advantage of all of the knowledge that he obtained from his father and putting it into practice to earn an income. With his tenacity and drive, Sebastián dreams of having a financially stable business that will enable him to pay for a university education in order to have better work opportunities and be a full professional who provides for his family's well being.
