Anibal De Jesus's story

Anibal has been characterized throughout his life as being a hard worker. He is the father of two children, 10 and 7 years old. Their mother abandoned them some time ago, so currently they are under Anibal's care. He always wanted to provide the best quality of living for his children, which is why he strives every day to work with the intention of moving his family forward.

Anibal is a dedicated crop farmer, a trade learned from his father. Ever since it has been the revenue-generating activity needed to sustain their home. Anibal encountered severe production difficulties in recent months due to bad weather, which had an impact on crop quality.

Anibal wants to enhance his production and ensure its improved quality, and improve the harvest by using mesh netting to prevent animals from damaging the crops.

Anibal is therefore seeking a loan so that he can purchase irrigation and water-protection equipment, seeds and mesh netting enabling him to grow good quality crops. Anibal is hoping for good quality crops so that he can sell his products at a good price, and offer his children a better quality of living.

Anibal's dream is to operate a large farm including the breeding and selling of livestock, which will provide his children with economic stability.
