A loan of $250 helped to buy seeds.

Rene Antonio's story

Rene is a simple farmer from San Lorenzo, outside of Teustepe. He’s the father of one son and his wife is a housewife who helps him with the household tasks while he supports the home. He started working with his father at age 7, raising basic grains, and began planting a crop of beans on his own at age 15. Besides farming he also works as a mason, looking for new ways to bring income to the family.

He needs this loan to buy bean, corn, and wheat seed and expects to stockpile plenty of basic grains to sell during the summer months, when these products begin to become scarce. One of his plans is to buy livestock and land to improve his income. He has a goal to improve the infrastructure in his home so that the family will have a dignified roof over their heads.
