Juan Carlos's story

Every morning, fresh air caresses the face of Juan Carlos, who, with much energy, leaves his house in order to analyze the condition of his crops. He always makes sure that the tomatoes, sweet peppers, and tobacco are fit to be consumed, and he is concerned with the wellbeing of his customers.

He is 40 years old, and he is married with four children. He started his farm business 20 years ago, and it has been his principal source of income. His wife has been his right hand, and together they fight to give their family better living conditions.

Juan is requesting a second loan in order to increase his capital production; he needs to purchase agricultural supplies, fertilizers, and agrochemicals for controlling attacks from pests and other diseases.

He says that he is very grateful for the first loan, as he was able to achieve better income, which made it possible for him to cover the costs of his children’s schooling and improve their diet. He hopes that his crop yields will be good. One of his goals is to improve the infrastructure of his home and purchase work equipment.
