Israel Antonio
Israel is a gentleman who is responsible with his household obligations. He has always been known for providing the best for his children. Israel currently lives with his wife and their two children. He is a very hard worker who always goes about his business with cheerfulness and enthusiasm. The main crops he plants as a farmer are staples such as corn and beans.

Israel wants to increase his sales, so he is requesting a loan in order to buy seeds, compost, fertilizers, pesticides, and other supplies. This will enable him to improve the land on which he will plant seeds, as shown in the photograph. He would like to have the assistance he requested because he has no other financial resources. This will help him to provide for his daily household needs without any limitations.
