António's story

Antonio is a hardworking and dedicated man that dreams of one day opening up a seed processing factory. He is the father of five children that he manages to provide with food and education.

He enjoys searching and learning about new production techniques. Antonio plans to increase his production area, provide more job opportunities for other farmers, and open up other points of sale throughout his community and in the province of Manica.

Antonio has past experience in the department of seed processing because he used to work in a company doing exactly the same. It is where he got the idea of opening up his own factory.

He is involved in a partnership with a local businessman to produce locally certified seeds. He believes that with the help of the loan and the new irrigation system, he will be able to increase his production, which in turn will help with the increase in production area. This goes a long way into providing inputs and job opportunities in the region.
