Milton Adgusto's story
As time passes, Milton's harvests are greater each time. The tobacco, sweet pepper and tomato crops have improved in quality, an achievement which makes him feel happy. At the same time, he feels very grateful to the people who supported him with the previous loan since many of his advances came about due to this last one. Now with this success, this 43-year-old farmer feels more than ready for the next harvest. For this reason, Milton has decided to request a new loan in order to buy fertilizers, manure, insecticides, and to pay the labor costs for the next tobacco planting. With this, he will be able to continue cultivating one of the best crops in his city, obtain better profits, and continue sustaining his wife and children. After paying off this loan, he is thinking of starting to plant tomatoes.
