A loan of $700 helped to maintain plant health.


Mario Antonio's story

Mario Antonio M. A. is 38 years old. He is married and his wife sells fruit and vegetables. They have 2 children, one teenager who is in hgih school and another who is in elementary school. Mario Antonio is a farmer with more than 15 years of experience. Over the years, insect infestations have reduced his harvests and caused him financial problems. He is requesting this loan for his land, so that he can buy fertilizers and fungicides that will allow him to maintain plant health. This will benefit both his crops and his sales levels over the short term which, in turn, will be beneficial to him financially and allow him to continue improving his family's standard of living.
