Klever Antonio's story

Klever Antonio is 28 years old and single. He has a son, and lives with his parents in San Miguel, Bolívar province.

He is a member of the Patron San Miguel communal bank, located in the community of Paila Loma in San Miguel canton, 40 minutes from the branch office of Cooperativa San José Agencia in Chillanes. The members work in farming and livestock-raising.

Klever Antonio grows corn, potatoes, blackberries, and also raises chickens, pigs, and is a professional driver. He is requesting the loan in order to buy seeds for corn and blackberries, as well as fertilizers and insecticides.

With the loan's help, he will be able to buy good quality seeds. His dream is to be able to have his own house. The challenge he is facing is the loss of production from crop diseases and pest infestations.

In his free time he likes to play sports and enjoy the festivals of Carnival, Patrón San Miguel, and San Francisco.
