A loan of $650 helped to buy supplies and pay workers.

Domingo Antonio's story

Domingo Antonio, 50, lives in his own house with his wife, two children, and three grandchildren, who help him with the harvest. He is a farmer, and for more than 25 years, he has planted beans and corn, which has given him a lot of experience with these crops. He has been able to help his family advance with the sales from his harvests. Domingo wants to increase his production and hire other people to help him with the harvests. He also has new plans for his farm, like raising chickens, as the photo shows. But he doesn't have enough capital to be able to do it. So he decided to apply for a loan that will allow him to buy corn and bean seeds, insecticide, manure, some work tools, etc. He is confident he will be able to pay back the loan and give his family what they need with no limitations.
