A loan helped to buy a motorized lawnmower.

Lucas Antonio's story

Lucas has been working as a gardener for 25 years, and with his income he was able to buy his home, which he built little by little. His eldest son works with him, helping him out; the majority of his customers own country houses. Meanwhile, his wife works in a kindergarten so they both support each other economically. The loan Lucas is seeking is to buy his own motorized lawnmower to ease his work as it is very difficult and time-consuming working alone with only shears and so he can't progress a lot. With his own equipment, he will have more opportunities of finding more work, and in the future, he hopes to set up his own nursery of plants and grass.
