Roger Antonio's story

Señor Roger Antonio L. A. is a small farmer in the rural zone of Concepción. He is 43 years old. For 21 years he has grown pineapples. The greatest problem he has is smoke from the volcano, which affects the crop enormously. He needs financing to be able to buy fertilizers and supplies necessary to maintain a crop free from pests and other factors that can affect it. He began this agricultural activity thanks to the support of his wife and in-laws, who helped him with the land. Don Roger has struggled together with his wife, who works as a seamstress, to advance their three children, who are now in school. His plan for his family is to be able to give them a better education and always help them. At the same time, his dream is that one day he will have the means to be able to grow difference species of pineapple.
