Sebastian's story

Sebastian is a farmer, humble and hardworking, with the drive and spirit that distinguish the men and women of Colombia's countryside. He is a young man with an entrepreneurial mind and at a very young age learned all of the trades of the countryside such as farming and animal husbandry, so much so that today he has his own blackberry field which he learned to cultivate alongside his father. He sells his produce in the market square of the municipality of La Ceja, Antioquia.

He has a goal to grow his crops and improve his collection process, and for this reason he is seeking the help of a loan for the purchase of agricultural supplies such as fertilizers, baskets for the collection of blackberries, wire for planting, and blackberry seeds to continue his cultivations.

The loan will give him the opportunity to progress as a businessman and as a person, in addition to increasing his income and contributing to the sustenance of his home.

His only desire is to be able to improve his and his family's quality of life, for which he has struggled tirelessly.
