Nelson is 35 years old. He lives in his own home with his life's companion and their two children. He has worked growing corn and beans for several years.

He is a very hardworking, honest and responsible man. Despite the conditions in which he lives, which are very humble, he does not get tired of working and giving his family his best. He has decided to ask for a loan to buy the main agricultural materials: fertilizer, pesticide, seeds, etc. He hopes to have favorable results, since he doesn't have another source of income.
