Gilberto's story

Gilberto is 32 years old, single and has no children. He rents a plot of land to carry out his plant nursery, and he lives at the same site. He learned the activity by working with his sister Teresa at one of her nurseries. With the goal of going out on his own, he looked for his own work, and his sister supported him by providing him the raw materials and guaranteeing his first loans. Currently he has a sound small business that points to his growing quality and, above all, his customers' satisfaction. The loan he is requesting will be used to purchase seeds since suppliers come from Argentina every 45 days.
