Antonio is 28 years old. He is single and lives with his mother and brother in the village of Monquecagua in Intibucá.

Aside from attending school, Antonio also worked with his older brothers in farming. This experience helped him to be able to become independent with his own farming business, in particular growing potatoes, which he has been selling in the local market for the last 12 years. He works eight hours a day.

This is his first loan with ODEF, which he will invest in the purchase of certified potato seeds, as his goal is to increase his level of production, to give better assistance to his crops, and to increase his income. With the earnings obtained, he hopes to invest in building his own home.
