Rafael Antonio's story

Rafael Antonio is 36 years old. He is a person who has many dreams, all of which are geared toward providing for the welfare of his loving family that consists of his wife and three small children. Rafael works by cultivating basic grains. He does everything he can to provide the necessary care for his crops so that he can generate an excellent product. Rafael learned this line of work from his family, so he is very grateful to have the means of sustaining his household. At the same time, he earns additional income by working as a coffee picker in those years when harvesting is taking place.

Rafael is requesting a loan so that he can have the necessary funds to buy seeds for planting corn and beans that he will eventually sell. He will also buy compost, shovels, plows, and pesticides so that he can control any type of threat that could damage his crops, just as he has done in previous years. Rafael is known for being hardworking and responsible, which are very positive character traits.
