Erasmo Antonio's story

Erasmo is 44 years old and for many years has made a living working the land. He grows corn and sorghum with a lot of dedication and this work allows him to take home an income every day. Erasmo is hard-working, honest and responsible. He lives with his family - his wife and four children, aged 19, 17, ten and six years. Erasmo works very hard alongside his wife in order for the family to prosper and to improve their living conditions. Thanks to his knowledge of agriculture, his main source of income, Eramso is able to support the household. This is the only way he knows to earn an honest living. With a great desire to overcome problems, Erasmo has decdied to applying for a loan in order to buy necessary supplies such as seeds, manure and insecticides for the sowing season. Erasmo trusts in God and in his work that, with the help of this loan, he will have an abundant harvest that will allow him and his family to have a better quality of life.
