She has three children, only one of whom is studying at university because of their financial problems. She works hard every day in the hopes of seeing her son graduate.

Antonia is grateful for the support that she receives from Afodenic through Kiva funds because it has been a huge help for her and little by little she has been able to make changes in her life. With this loan she will purchase fertilizer and supplies to plant pineapples.
