A loan of $1,300 helped to buy seeds and organic fertilizer for his potato crop.


Antonio's story

Antonio, 60, has 12 children. He and his family live in Xolbé Hamlet, El Tablón Canton, Sololá. He’s a potato farmer. By means of this activity he earns acceptable income that helps him support his family. He’s been in this line of work for more than 25 years and works alongside most of his children who help him with all the chores this crop requires. He’s asking for a 10,000 Quetzal loan to buy seeds and organic fertilizer to provide maintenance for his potato crop. His most important dream is to buy more and to plant more potatoes to earn higher profits.
