Juan Fernando's story

Juan is a young farmer of 20 years of age who works at farming independently. He learned this skill from his father and it has become his principal source of income. He has crops of corn, beans and broad beans which he collects the harvest and sells it in the plaza of the municipal market. He makes enough money to support his household finances.

With the goal of strengthening his crops he is requesting a loan to buy agricultural inputs like manure, pesticides, fertilizers, etc. So he can fertilize his fields to have a more productive harvest. He could then generate more profit in his business.

Juan with his energy and his spirit of getting ahead, strives endlessly to achieve his goals. One of them is to have much larger harvests and to pay for his Secondary school studies and graduate and become a prosperous and solid businessman.
