Francisco Placido's story

Francisco is 56 years old. He has been a farmer for 30 years and that has given him the ability and knowledge necessary to assist his crops. His main crops are beans and corn and he sells his crops to the basic grain agencies close to his home. He pays the household expenses with what he makes. He lives in his own home with his wife and 3 of his 8 children.

Francisco is requesting a loan to be able to buy agricultural inputs which will help with the planting of his crops like manure, seeds, fertilizers, pesticides, etc. He wants to improve his plot that is shown in the photo, to generate more profit and provide his family with what they need.
