View original language description ↓
Amalio is a farmer and, along with his wife, he works the land that he inherited from his parents so that they can cultivate it and year after year plant the seeds of their agricultural produce. Because this is his main source of income, Amalio strives to produce suitably excellent vegetables and this is visible from the testimony of his neighbors and relatives who attest to the arduous work that Amalio and his wife carry out. They are not only good farmers, but responsible parents who fight to put their family ahead.

Now this couple needs your support to be able to increase their yields and, due to an increase in the cost of medicine for their fields, they are asking for a loan that will be invested in the purchase of fertilizer and compost. We hope that you can help Amalio to improve his produce and increase his yields.
