Manuel Antonio's story

Manuel is married, and his wife devotes herself to the household chores. He has four children, and two of them go to school.

Manuel has devoted himself to agriculture ever since his childhood. He learned this line of work thanks to his parents. The land that he cultivates is 30 minutes from his house by foot. His children help him with this work.

He needs the loan to pay for labor to gather the harvest and to transport it to his house.

Manuel dreams of always getting the earnings needed to support his family.
