Jose Antonio's story

Jose lives in his own house with his family. He has been farming for several years. His main crops are corn and sorghum. When his harvest is ready, he sells it at the different markets that are close to where he lives. With the earnings that he gets from his sales, he manages to cover some of the household expenses.

Jose is requesting a loan to buy some needed supplies like compost, pesticides, seeds, herbicides, and fertilizers, etc. He hopes to have favorable results because he does not have another source of income. He trusts in God that he will manage to get an abundant harvest, which will allow him to continue bringing home the daily bread.
