Eddy Antonio's story

Eddy, 53 years old, was born in San Jacinto, a community on the outskirts of Leon. He is a farmer, the father of 5 children, all of whom are helping with the labor of planting. Eddy began this activity 15 years ago, sowing corn and beans. Today, in addition to planting and selling basic grains, he also grows vegetables. Eddy's products are sold in the city of Leon, where he looks for customers who will pay a just price for his vegetables and basic grains.

Eddy is requesting a loan to buy inputs, fertilizers, and gasoline for his irrigation motor, so that he can plant sweet peppers and onions. He hopes to obtain a good harvest what will enable him to improve his income and continue planting more fields of vegetables.
