Guillermo Antonio's story

Guillermo is married and has six children. He has always wanted to provide them with a better quality of life. It is for this reason that he works hard in his business every day to make enough money to be able to cover the day-to-day expenses of his household. For approximately the last four years he has been making his living as a farmer. He has some plots where he grows vegetables of very high quality; this has earned him a very good reputation among his customers. This has resulted in a steady and continual increase in sales. Wanting to take advantage of the current market prices for his vegetables, Guillermo is seeking a loan that will allow him to buy fertilizer, compost, insecticide and fungicide to improve his crop yields. He will then be able to sell his crops at the best prices currently available.

In this way he will be able to make very good income, which will allow him to bring a very good quality of life his family and progress little by little economically.
