Jose Antonio
Mr. Jose Antonio has been growing corn for 20 years now, both for sale and personal consumption. In the afternoons, after his work in the fields, he also sells dried firewood from his oxcart. He goes out to the city of Nacaome to sell the firewood, in order to earn income to sustain his family. Jose lives with his wife and their three children, two of which attend school in their community. Jose has dedicated the better part of his life to the fields. He lives in a zone where this is the only source of income that exists.

He will use this loan to buy dried firewood. He would like to have enough firewood because during this rainy season, the price of dry firewood increases, since with so much rain, it is difficult to dry it.

Jose has a dream that his children will become professionals and go out to search for better options outside the zone where they live.
