Mr. Antonio is a small producer from the Muelle de los Bueyes sector. He lives in the Las Pavas region with his family, composed of his wife Maria Simona and their two children, Mariela who is 14 years old and Ezequiel who is 12 years old. Both children are studying in primary school. His plot is suitable for livestock since he has a galley, a wood corral, and diverse types of pastures, water supplies, and meadows. He is asking for his fifth loan to purchase 5 small bulls and take care of them, grow them, and when they have a good weight he will sell them at a better price that will allow him to increase his earnings and help him provide his family with better living conditions. He says that the loans obtained from AFODENIC have allowed him to improve the living conditions for his family, since little by little he has increased his livestock inventory and improved his plot in order to better care for his livestock.
