Omar Antonio's story

33-year old Omar lives with his wife and two children aged 8 and 4 in his own house. He earns his living growing corn and chilies, work he’s been doing for several years. As a result he has lots of experience which has allowed him to obtain better harvests. He sells the produce in nearby communities where he has many customers who buy from him because of the quality of his goods, his fair prices, and above all for his good service.

Now Omar needs money to invest in his business so he is seeking a loan to buy corn seeds, insecticide, herbicide etc. He has good references from his acquaintances regarding repayment of money and is very responsible. He is certain that he can pay off his debt according to the established schedule and at the same time is confident that he will provide his family with economic security.
