Adonay's story

Adonay, age 65, has been cultivating the land for many years. He grows corn and sorghum with great dedication. This allows him to bring home the daily bread to his household. He is known for being a hard-working, honest, and responsible man. He lives with his family, which is comprised of his wife and their three children, ages 16, 15, and 11. Together with his wife, they work very hard in order to get their family ahead and to give them better living conditions than what they had.

Thanks to his knowledge of farming, he manages to support his household. It is his main source of income, given that it is the only way he knows to earn an honest living.

With a great desire for improvement, he approached the institution in order to request a loan. This is because planting season has started, and he needs to start planting as soon as possible. That is the reason he is requesting the loan. He needs to buy the agricultural supplies like seeds, fertilizers, and insecticides, etc. in order to plant.

He trusts in God and in his work that this way he will manage to have an abundant harvest. The harvest will allow him to access a better quality of life for himself and for his family.
