Miguel Antonio's story

Miguel is a 35 year old humble man from the country. He lives with his partner and his 15 and 14 year old daughters who go to school in his parents house. They are giving him this support so that Miguel doesn't have to pay rent as it is very difficult to support a family with no regular salary.

Miguel works as day labor and also earns a living selling potatoes, corn and peas in bulk. He obtains this produce by working the land, planting the seeds. When he doesn't have his own crops he looks for crops in his area and buys bags of potatoes, peas and corn at a good price and takes them to the market and makes a profit.

Miguel wants to continue to develop his business. So he is requesting this loan to buy potatoes, peas, corn, sacks, twine as well as agricultural inputs to grow a small garden that he has. In this way he will continue to get ahead with his family.
