Angel Antonio's story

Ángel, who is 53 years old, has worked in agriculture for several years; this has given him the skills and knowledge necessary to tend to his crops. His main crop is rice. He sells his harvests in grain agencies that are close to his place of residence. With the earnings that he obtains from his sales, he manages to cover some of his household costs.

Ángel lives with his wife and their five children. He is requesting a loan to be able to buy agricultural supplies that will help him in the planting of his crops, such as soil amendments, seeds, fertilizers, herbicides, etc. This will enable him to have better earnings so he can give his family a better quality of life.
