Félix Antonio
Felix is 42 years old and is married with three children. Two of them are male that are no longer of dependent age that need the resources to carry out their work on time and at the same time have as their earnings the work they have done for neighbors. He has been a day laborer since he was an adolescent and could not attend school. He has 32 years of experience performing this work.

The loan that Felix is requesting is to buy two oxen for work because every time that he needs them to cultivate the corn fields he must search for someone that can rent them to him at a rate of $30 dollars for 7,000 square meters of land. Felix plants an area of 28,000 square meters so this would save him a lot of money.

By having his own oxen, he will fulfill his work when he needs to and will also be able to fulfill other people's work. With this he will have an income that will allow him to buy more nourishment for his family and send his daughter to school. What he hopes for the most is that his daughter becomes a professional since he could not do so himself.
