Roberto Antonio
Roberto Antonio is 34 years old and lives in his own home along with his wife and children. He makes a living growing basic grains like corn and sorghum. It is worth mentioning that not only does he grow the basic grains, but he also sells the products after the harvest at the main markets in his area. He has 10 years of experience in this activity, so he has gained a lot of knowledge about the trade. He is requesting the loan because the harvest season has begun but he does not have the means to invest in his crops on his own. He plans to use the loan to purchase agricultural supplies like seeds, manure and fertilizers, which are necessary in order to have a good harvest. He has a lot of confidence in the support of this institution, with which he will be able to start sowing his land and obtain a good harvest, and in this way he can continue bringing home the daily bread for his family.

Roberto Antonio de 34 años de edad, habita en casa de su propiedad junto con su esposa y sus hijos. Él se dedica al cultivo de granos básicos como: maicillo y maíz. Cabe mencionar que no solo cultiva los granos básicos si no que después de obtener la cosecha, pone a la venta una parte de la cosecha. La venta la realiza en los principales mercados de la zona donde habita. Tiene 10 años de experiencia en esta actividad por lo que ya cuenta con muchos conocimientos en el desarrollo de la misma. Debido a que la temporada para realizar la cosecha ha comenzado, ha tomado la decisión de solicitar este préstamo, dado que no cuenta con los recursos económicos para realizar la inversión por su cuenta.
