Libardo Antonio's story

Libardo Antonio is sixty-two years old and is married with nine children. His greatest virtue is his persistence. This, he says, is what has allowed him to continue moving forward with his children.

Seven months ago, he decided to close his vegetable stall in the market in his town, since he was generating losses due to the high competition. He made the decision to put a shop in his home, since his business is the only source of income for sustaining his home.

Presently, he is requesting a loan to buy merchandise, in order to supply his business and to increase the level of sales, thereby improving the quality of life. His greatest wish is to be able to live peacefully without his family having to pass up needs.
