Iván De Jesús's story

Iván is a vigorous and hard-working farmer of 52 years of age. He is married and the father of 3 children who he has brought up with effort and dedication. In the 15 years he has laboured in the fields he has worked as an employee on various farms. Today he works as an administrator on a farm and independently has his own flower crops which he has been growing for the past 7 months on his wife's land.

With the loan he has requested he will buy seedlings, fertilizer and other agricultural inputs for the next crop which will be in about 3 months. He will sell them to the various florists in the municipality where he lives and in the local market.

Iván says that his main goal is to have very productive crops which would guarantee a stable financial situation so he can provide University education for his children and enjoy a higher standard of living with his family.
