Manuel Antonio
Manuel has been a farmer for many years and this has given the necessary abilities and knowledge to attend to his crops. His main crop is corn and beans.

Manuel is requesting a loan to be able to buy agricultural supplies which help him in planting his crops such as manure, seeds, fertilizer as well as the rental fee for the land, which is shown in the photograph.
