Silvino Antonio's story

Silvino Antonio M. B. is from the Santani district. He is 35 years old, and married to Maria Alicia Salinas de M., 37 years old. They have one school-aged child.

He has a store in his home, which is one of the family’s activities, and the family also farms, planting manioc in particular, and other items for their own consumption.

The store has a regular customer base, and generates healthy earnings, which helps the family greatly with household expenses. Mrs. M. usually attends to the business, with the assistance of her son.

Silvino leaves his house quite early each day, and brings large quantities of manioc to sell at the market. He also picks up any products that he's missing at his business. He is requesting this loan to buy bags of onions, tomatoes and other vegetables in bulk.
