Antonio De Jesus's story

Antonio needs to make a new investment, as he continues to carry on some agricultural activities, and will also invest in his clothing sales business. He will buy fertilizer and herbicides, as well as blouses and pants in order to build up the business and increase the variety of clothing articles. He says that the investment with the previous loan allowed him to improve his farming and his harvests. Normally he farms, and on public holidays sells clothing. From these two livelihoods he has managed to help his family move forward, providing them a decent quality of life.
