Anastacio's story

Anastasio works cultivating basic grains. He is single and lives with his grandmother. He has worked in agriculture for 30 years with a schedule of working from 5:00am to 11:00am. He learned this trade from his father. The downside of this work is that the production is dependent on weather conditions.

He is requesting a loan to invest in agricultural inputs and payment of laborers for planting. With this loan he will be able to start planting, have the materials needed for the care, the opportunity to get good harvest, and after the harvest fills the granaries he can sell part of it.

His goal is to obtain food security for himself and his grandmother and to live better.
